Future Signers of America was formed by a group of interested American Sign Language students in 1998. Although the official name is F.S.A, the club decided, in August of 2013, to be known as the ASL club. The purpose of the club is to educate the people interested in the fields pertaining to the language along with Deaf culture.
The club is open to anybody; being able to sign is not a requirement. Meetings take place on the first Tuesday of each month and the dues are $10.00
The club always performs at the Deaf Service Center’s Sing and Sign (the annual fundraiser). We have gone to Immersion workshops (where students sign the whole time), Deaf Awareness Days, storytelling workshops in which Deaf persons act or perform the story and Deaf Expos.
The club has given a monetary scholarship to a deserving elementary student in the Hearing Impaired program during the first semester, at which we also perform a song. During the second semester, FSA gives a small scholarship to a deserving student in the same program at Fort Myers Middle Academy.
