Sign Classes Attract Young Learners

An American Sign Language class sponsored by the New Castle Quota club in Pennsylvania, U.S.A., attracted 15 students—three of them still in elementary school!

The class included five weekly sessions lasting two hours each. On the first night, a dozen enthusiastic adults were surprised to see three little girls in their midst. As the weeks progressed, the girls’ dedication to learning to sign motivated the entire class to achieve. And the presence of one deaf classmate provided invaluable insights to all students into the need and value of signing.

Each student received a certificate of achievement at the end of the last class. Because the small group had bonded so well, most of the class left with tears of joy at their success— thanks to the efforts of the Quota club that provided the opportunity.
