American Sign Language Honors Club - Metro Tech

American Sign Language Honors Club-is a club that was designed to allow inner city High School students who are learning American Sign Language at Metro-Tech High School the opportunity to meet Phoenix Day School for the Deaf High School students who attend our CTE programs part of the day. This interaction is facilitated through our club and our Peer to Peer Partnership Program. The Peer to Peer Partnership Program allows students the opportunity to practice their ASL skills and interact with the Deaf community. Our ASL second year students host a Peer to Peer Partnership kickoff event each year with the Phoenix Day School for the Deaf students who attend our CTE programs for two hours each day. After the kick off activity the second year ASL students then meet each week with the Phoenix Day School for the Deaf students at their CTE class here on our campus for 15 min to chat in ASL (without any interpreters) making that teen to teen peer to peer the old "Hey what's up connection" that is so important in today's world. Through the once a week meeting students build strong friendships and improve their ASL skills. "I'm still friends with students I meet over the Peer to Peer Partnership we did on Fridays. So many great friendships and connections" -2013 MTHS graduate and ASL student
