Event description

Description

We are now proud to announce that we are bringing our Rock My World program to Albury!

This is the condensed version of our Hear For You Series so instead of 4 separate sessions over 4 months, we are now running it over two Saturdays in March and April.

This is perfect for those who:

  • are from the local Albury region

  • are from Rural or Regional areas in Victoria/New South Wales

  • want to get a taste of our flagship Mentoring program and meet our Legendary Mentors

  • BONUS: Lunch will be provided with Tea and Coffee too for Mum and Dad if they want to stay

  • Live Captioning available if requested

Note: If you are on the NDIS, you may be able to use your funding to pay for the program costs.


Rock My World
Will host its FIRST ever Sessions in Albury on Saturday 17th of March & Saturday 28th of April.

In the meantime Rock My World is all about getting the teens out and about on excursions with other deaf teens like themselves. This particular Series is a bit more flexible getting the teens to focus on team building and learning. I personally love these sessions as we spend more time out of the classroom environment which the teens usually prefer.


We're aiming to host Workshop from 10am - 3pm
LUNCH IS INCLUDED


Parents Info Session
Our Mentors like to keep Parents informed on what we do at Hear For You. Albury is a new location on our Hear For You map, so our Info Session is great to answer any questions the parents may have about our program.
This is not compulsory, as we undertstand the busy family lifestyles.
