Name of Organization
American Sign Language Learners’ Club
Mission Statement (What Is Your Club / Organization About?)
In order to spread awareness and inclusion of the deaf community, this group of Millersville students will learn basic conversational ASL, proper etiquette, and everyday phrases. The goal will be to learn and be able to have interactions and conversations in ASL with deaf or hard-of-hearing people. Through collaborative instruction during weekly sessions, the students of the club will learn how to sign.
Who Are the Leaders of The Organization?
Alyssa Matchett, Emily Dunn, Jacob Coopersmith, and Taylor Michael
Why Should Someone Join Your Organization?
Anyone who would like to learn sign language may join! Sign language is a pathway into a much wider community of people. It is an amazing skill and tool for any job. No experience needed at all to start up with us!
What Do You Do Within Your Organization?
Each Thursday evening, we come together in McComsey 132 at 7:30pm. During our meetings, we discuss any news that has been happening in the deaf community and then go onto our curriculum guided by ASL Rochelle, a wonderful YouTuber who has great free resources for anyone who is unable to make it to the club!
What Do You Hope Your Members Get Out of Being Part of The Organization?
We hope that whoever comes to join our club gains knowledge about the deaf community & culture. We also hope that they can use the skills they learn in sign language in their everyday lives!
Any Upcoming Events?
A Quiet Place Part II showing at Manor Regal movie theater in Millersville – Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 7:30pm.
