Program Overview

Youth Education & Services, also known as The Signing Aces (Advocacy, Community, Empowerment) serves Deaf, deaf, and hard of hearing youth from first grade through high school. Our after-school program (ASP) provides homework assistance, enrichment activities, and literacy development and support. Deaf individuals use American Sign Language (ASL), a completely different language than English, so they truly are English Language Learners developing literacy in a written language. The after-school program also provides a warm and safe home away from home where students are able to share a
common experience and perspective. YouthEducation and Services also provides summer camps. Camp Sign Me Up is for hearing students whowant to learn ASL and Camp Rise & Sign is a sleepaway camp for Deaf and hard
of hearing students, offering them an authentic camp experience complete withcampfires, fireflies, and fun in a fully, language-accessible environment. Camp Jump Start offers camp days throughout the year that are filled with enrichment and tutoring.
