Title of Project Wilderness Pursuits for Deaf Youth Identify the general topic to be investigated: The availability of extended wilderness pursuits for the Deaf Community and providing the Deaf community with the opportunity to participate in wilderness pursuits. List at least 3 questions you would like answered concerning your project. 1. What opportunities are there for the Deaf Community already? 2. What are the benefits of participating in wilderness pursuits/outdoor reacreation? 3. Does participation in outdoor recreation increase sense of belonging and sense of community? How does your project affect your life outside of school? What makes this project important to the community or world around you? My project affects my life outside of school because outdoor recreation has always been a passion of mine, especially canoe tripping. Since meeting Kyle and having classes with interpreters I have become fascinated by ASL and I plan to learn. I would love to combine my passion of canoeing with my new desire to learn ASL, and provide an opportunity for the Deaf Community to participate in wilderness pursuits that I find to be so beneficial. I think this project is important to the community/world around me, because there are not a lot of opportunities for the deaf community to participate in this type of program, and I believe that it is important allow everyone to participate.

What help from other teachers/ subjects might you need? I am new to learning about the Deaf Community, so I might need help in better understand their needs.

List a minimum of three different resources you will use. At least one of these must be a primary source (living person). 1. Camps/Outdoor Programs that already exist 2. Kyle Rosenberg 3. Journals/Articles Project Content I. II. Develop an outline to define and organize your project. (Attach it to this proposal.)

III. List at least three (3) different types of resources that you will use for your project, other than the Internet. Make sure to talk to a person as one of your resources. 1. Organizations 2.
