Make American Sign Language Available!
Organized by: Gillian Jenema
Hello! My name is Gillian and I am currently working on my degree to be able to teach American Sign Language (ASL) to others and help those that are deaf, hard of hearing, and or mute become more acquainted in our growing hearing culture. The gap between hearing and those who are apart of the deaf community constantly increases due to lack of understanding each other, and my goal is to minimize the gap and bring everyone together! My goal is to create enough money to start a class of American Sign language in local daycares and soon branch out even further as children are little sponges who want to learn and can retain this new language easier at a younger age. Please help me bring these two cultures closer together! Any amount, small or large will help in this process and help kids understand cultural acceptance. Thank you all so much, I am very excited to be working with all of you!
