Tcdeaf.com is committed to being a strong advocate for the local Minnesota Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Signing Community. We are working hard to provide media services to the community to help create a more informed, engaged and connected Deaf community. But this will not happen without your support.
You can help TCDeaf.com by volunteering for us. This is an online volunteering opportunity, to be done primarily through our website. The work is ongoing, but occasional, up to 2-3 hours a week. Activities may include managing site submissions, community research, data entry, performing community outreach, fundraising and creation of ASL videos. Technical skills not required, just a willingness to help.
Fluency in American Sign Language (ASL) is strongly preferred.
