Clubs and organizations are a great way to help develop character and the skills that will benefit you in school, your career, and in life. Skills like commitment, leadership, effective communication, and being able to work successfully in a group all come from participating in a club or organization. Joining a club is a great way to make friends, develop leadership skills, and boost your college resumé.

Members of the Western High School American Sign Language Club work hard to dispel the myths surrounding deafness, Deaf culture and American Sign Language (ASL).One of the Club’s goals is to help the Deaf and disabled individuals in our community. To achieve this, the club creates and participates in meaningful local projects and school activities such as:
- The Schott 5K Roll and Walkathon to help benefit the Deaf and disabled in our community (one year, our members raised over $5,000 and the top fundraisers enjoyed a pizza party and gained valuable service hours for their efforts).
- Students volunteer at Schott Communities regularly to help teach basic ASL to adults with multiple disabilities, some nonverbal.
- ASL Club members visit Flamingo Elementary School in order to promote literacy by reading to students while teaching them basic sign language.
- Our club members also partner with the SVE classes at Western High to teach signs and promote literacy on a monthly basis.
- Every December, ASL students dress up in holiday gear and visit other classrooms at Western to teach winter-related signs, sign songs, and spread good cheer.
- Students collaborate with Peter's Elementary to donate holiday gifts for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing students in elementary school.
- ASL Club members fundraise throughout the year to give back to non-profit organizations and raise money for three scholarships for our seniors (David Olafson Scholarship).
Last but not least, the ASL Club hopes to instill both respect and a positive attitude towards ASL and the Deaf Community by helping to educate peers at Western High and in our community.
