Learn about a virtual program that was created to teach youth about American Sign Language (ASL).  Educators Mindy Grant,  Bri Fisher, Jenny Cable share how they utilized statewide partnerships and local community members to access the expertise and experience needed to guide youth learning around ASL.  Youth voice was incorporated into a safe space to ask questions in order to have opportunities for deeper learning and greater understanding of ASL and the deaf community.
