Description

Introducing the 2017 Life Goals & Skills Blast FOR SHEPPARTON!

(BENALLA & NORTH)

We are now proud to announce that we are bringing the Life Goals & Skills Blast program to Shepparton!

This is the condensed version of our flagship Life Goals & Skills Program so instead of 4 separate sessions over 4 months, we are now running it over one weekend!

This is perfect for those who:

  • are from the local Shepparton region

  • are from Rural or Regional areas in Victoria

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

  • BONUS: Lunch will be provided with Tea and Coffee too

  • 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.


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This is for current deaf/hard of hearing High School students (Year 7 to Year 12).


I live outside of the Shepparton regions but I would really like to attend this Blast. Can I do so?

Yes, of course! Any deaf/hard of hearing teenager is most welcome to enrol in the Blast :)


What is the mentor to participant ratio?

Depending on the number of participants we can have anywhere between 3 - 5 Mentors.


The ticket says it is for 'One deaf/hard of hearing teenager', does this mean I have to purchase a separate tickets for myself (parent) and siblings?

No, if you and your other children wish to accompany your deaf/hard of hearing teenager to the Parent Seminar, you are welcome to do so at no extra cost.


Why the registration fee?

This is the fee to secure your teenager's enrolment $50

Yes this is possible. After purchasing the NDIS Participant Registration fee ticket, please contact David Brady on david.brady@hearforyou.com.au to inform him whether you are:

You will need to give us your NDIS number and the number of hours or funding amount that you have secured with your NDIA planner.


What if I am not on the NDIS/I am not eligible for the NDIS and I would to love to attend, what do I do?
