get trained on interpreting for torture and trauma survivors

The training is run by the organization The Voice of Love, and the training is called Healing Voices.  They are currently running their second training like this in Chicago, and have another one coming up in San Francisco Jan 7-11 all day every day for $500, scholarships available.  It comes with a 300 page manual they've gotten some star authors to work on.  You have to have at least 40 hours of other professional interpreter training to participate.

animador/a: organizer

as in, "no tenemos lideres, todos somos animadores"

I wouldn't always go the other direction with this term though - the term animador is used in some Latin American contexts and not in others.
