About Us


Vietnamese Language Access (VIETLA) is a newly founded 501(c)3 nonprofit organization conceived in 2019 by a group of Vietnamese community leaders and language experts with combined decades of experience in promoting language access for individuals with limited English proficiency (LEP).

Most, if not all, of our board directors, advisory council, and volunteers are certified interpreters, translators, and educators of the Vietnamese language and currently working for local government agencies, community-based organizations, and public school districts.
