  1. DuBOIS – There is still time to sign up for remaining seats in both a 10-week introductory sign language course, as well a 6-week intermediate class for those who would like to increase their sign language skills. This Fall Penn State DuBois Continuing and Community Education will offer both, with Marla Jo Ball as the instructor. These courses are Act 48 approved for continuing education credits for educators who work with hearing impaired students or those with autism who use sign language as their primary form of communication. Students applying for Act 48 credits must attend all the class hours and complete any independent projects in order to receive credits. The introductory class will meet from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, beginning October 1, in Room 209 of the DEF Building at Penn State DuBois. This class teaches finger spelling, conversational phrases and a variety of commonly used signs. The class will also include introducing students to the deaf culture and a variety of web sites for independent learning. Students will be introduced to the concept of “What does it look like?” as an approach to learning this language in comparison to learning a spoken language and how words sound. Class structure will include small group centers for practicing and improving skills. The goal of the class is to allow students to learn, recognize and reproduce more than 100 signs, while also gaining the ability to spell and read fingerspelling phonetically. At the end of the class, students will be expected to converse with others at a basic level. Registration is $160, with discounts for current Penn State students and employees. Contact Penn State DuBois Continuing and Community Education for details and discount codes. The more advanced class will meet Thursdays from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. beginning October 10, in Room 209 of the DEF Building at Penn State DuBois. It is open to those with basic knowledge of American Sign Language. As part of the class, students will be required to conduct an independent study project based on a specific topic related to American Sign Language. This project will require time outside of class, in addition to the nine hours of class. The goal of this class is to expand on their current knowledge of sign language and ultimately allow them to learn, recognize and reproduce more than 200 signs. Registration for this class is $100 and similar discounts to the introductory class exist for this class as well. Students wishing to register for either class can go to the Penn State DuBois web site at: https://dubois.psu.edu/listen-your-eyes-introduction-american-sign-language

  3. CLEARFIELD COUNTY AREA AGENCY ON AGING AND THE VILLAGE OF HOPE JOIN THE GLOBAL #GIVINGTUESDAY MOVEMENT Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging and The Village of Hope, Inc., Lecontes Mills – CCAAA and its subsidiary, The Village of Hope, Inc., has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. The Village of Hope, Inc., will be an alternative to institutional care for those with cognitive loss, and will be a safe, supportive environment for disabled adults and grandparents raising grandchildren. Donations can be made on the website, www.ourvillageofhope.com, under “Current Fundraiser.” Occurring this year on December 3rd, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the US) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support. CCAAA is embracing the power of online giving, for the first time ever, by participating in #GivingTuesday. The Agency believes The Village of Hope to be a beacon for so many across the Commonwealth of PA and the U.S. due to its unique, innovative nature, and being a part of #GivingTuesday showcases the benefits of this amazing community to people who might not otherwise be aware of it and who may also be drawn to donate for such a cause. The Clearfield County AAA and The Village of Hope have set $15,000 as the initial goal, but are optimistic about exceeding that amount. Partnering with Dr. Bill Thomas, MINKA Homes and KTH Architects has not only solidified the core foundation of the Village, but has also powered its ingenuity and potential impact for those it stands to serve. Ms. Kathleen Gillespie, CEO of the CCAAA and visionary of The Village of Hope, chose the project’s name because a family member once told her, after Gillespie has opened her first dementia unit, “If it were me or my family affected [by dementia], I would simply want to know there is hope.” Founded in 2012, GivingTuesday has inspired millions of people to give back and support the causes they believe in. Over $400 million was raised online in 2018 to benefit a tremendously broad range of organizations, and much more was given in volunteer hours, donations of food and clothing, and acts of kindness. “When GT launched in the US in 2012, we believed that technology and social media could be used to make generosity go viral;” said Asha Curran, Giving Tuesday’s CEO and co-founder. “We believed in the idea that people fundamentally want to five and to talk about giving; and that the social sector had the capacity to show more innovative leadership, creativity and collaboration. People and organizations around the world proved us right. As we prepare for December 3, we’re energized and encouraged by the community’s generosity. The levels of creativity, effort and the quality of the new ideas people have contributed and shared are phenomenal.” The Village of Hope has created its own hashtag, #GivingThemHopeDay, which will be used on social media to draw donors to the cause. Those who are interested in joining CCAAA and The Village of Hope #GivingTuesday initiative can visit www.ourvillageofhope.com, click on “Current Fundraiser” and then “Donate.” Individuals can also follow CCAAA and The Village of Hope, Inc. on Facebook by each non-profit’s name respectively.
