Internship & Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Program

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 limited housing and meals to pre-and post-college students who do not live in the area.

*Note for both potential interns and student teachers:

Fluency in sign language is evaluated to appropriately place candidates. To fulfill this essential part of the application, sign language is the method of communication during interviews. The interview will include the following questions:

1. What motivated you to contact the American School for the Deaf?

2. What strengths/skills are you bringing to the placement?

3. What specific goals or aspirations do you have that will be met through placement?

4. What age group do you prefer to work with?

If selected to interview, you will be contacted to schedule a day and time that is convenient.
Interviews are conducted in person, through Videophone, Skype or Facetime.

Applications for Fall placement are accepted between August 1st and September 15th. Applications for Winter/Spring placements are accepted until December 15th. Applications for Summer are accepted between January 1st and March 1st.

Thank you for your interest in ASD.

Founded in 1817, the American School for the Deaf was the first permanent school for the deaf in the United States, the first special education school in the country, and the birthplace of American Sign Language.

The school embraces an American Sign Language/English Bilingual approach to provide our students with a dual language foundation in both American Sign Language and English. This approach integrates American Sign Language, speech, auditory training, reading, writing, and the use of assistive devices, which allows our students to achieve true language and communication literacy.

Thank you for your interest in joining the ASD family!

The American School for the Deaf is an Equal Opportunity Employer: M/F/V/H/D.

All applicants will be screened and the most highly qualified applicants will be invited to interview.

Volunteer Requests

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 Requests

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 limited housing and meals to pre-and post-college students who do not live in the area.

*Note for both potential interns and student teachers:

Fluency in sign language is evaluated to appropriately place candidates. To fulfill this essential part of the application, sign language is the method of communication during interviews. The interview will include the following questions:

1. What motivated you to contact the American School for the Deaf?

2. What strengths/skills are you bringing to the placement?

3. What specific goals or aspirations do you have that will be met through placement?

4. What age group do you prefer to work with?

If selected to interview, you will be contacted to schedule a day and time that is convenient.
Interviews are conducted in person, through Videophone, Skype or Facetime.

Applications for Fall placement are accepted between August 1st and September 15th. Applications for Winter/Spring placements are accepted until December 15th. Applications for Summer are accepted between January 1st and March 1st.

Thank you for your interest in ASD.
