Internship and Volunteer Opportunities

Click here for the Intern & Volunteer Application


Volunteers play a significant role in the vitality of the American School for the Deaf. ASD takes the commitment our volunteers make very seriously and strives to make it a meaningful, satisfying experience. We often receive requests from people who want to improve their sign language skills or experience Deaf Culture by volunteering. It is difficult for us to find meaningful, ongoing, direct-service placements for people with limited or no sign language skills. We do, however, offer several one-time volunteer or experiential opportunities throughout the year. In March, we host Family Learning Weekend, a recruit volunteers for various tasks. We also encourage people to volunteer at our annual Golf Tournament in May. In October, we hold our annual Homecoming celebration, and while there are no volunteer opportunities, this event provides a great opportunity to immerse oneself in Deaf Culture. Please check our Calendar for the exact dates and times.


Internship Program 

The Internship program is designed to provide practical experience in Deaf Education and Deaf Culture through classroom and dormitory work, and immersion in a sign language environment. This long-term, in-depth involvement helps the intern in the development of educational and career plans. The ASD Intern Program offers housing and meals to pre-and post-college students who do not live in the area.

Thank you for your interest in ASD.
