Language Brokering in schools is the act of multilingual students interpreting and translating between parents/guardians and school personnel. Children and adolescents are often asked to language broker due to understanding school-community culture and having the ability to speak English. Language brokering can yield inequitable outcomes for multilingual youth. The presenters will discuss the impact of language brokering on students and actions counselors can take to prevent inappropriate practice.
