American Sign Language Spotlight

The Sweet Hand believes in giving back to the community. In this spirit, we are honored to provide local Deaf students with part-time employment. When Deaf students work for The Sweet Hand, they learn how to give excellent customer service, gain baking experience, and understand the ins and outs of running a business. The Sweet Hand also provides students with an opportunity to prepare their resumes and sharpen their interviewing skills. Our goal is to give students the chance to experience the real world in a hands-on fashion alongside Deaf mentors.

The Sweet Hand is proud to promote Language Acquisition for Deaf children. We are a passionate advocate for Deaf children and their parents, and we seek to support them in a variety of ways.
