This was the third year Southeast Conservation Corps and CorpsTHAT partnered together to set up the second ASL inclusion crew within SECC’s programs. In 2017 Brenna Kelly reached out to CorpsTHAT with the vision of making SECC’s crews more accessible and inclusive to Deaf and Hard of Hearing youth and young adults in the Southeast region. Seeing the success of the first crew in 2019 both organizations were excited to work together again for the 2020 season. Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic the crew was unable to run that summer. With the situation better under control this summer we were excited to work with SECC again in partnering to make sure their ASL Inclusion (ASLi) Crew was successful! Because of this we were able to combine CorpsTHAT’s Crew Leader training with SECC and therefore had more opportunity to support the crews in person this year. SECC’s first session and second session ASLi Crews worked hard, accomplishing a lot this summer!
