Hear For You is a place like no other – it’s a place where young deaf or hard of hearing teenagers can hang out amongst other peers, have lots of fun and make lots of friends. Our mentors understand and remember well the challenges that a young deaf or hard of hearing teenager can experience.
Our workshop sessions bring together groups of teenagers to realise that deafness is more of a “difference” than a disadvantage. We show you that they are not alone, to inspire them, and to share hints and tips on how to deal with all the obstacles that come with deafness.
We want to give you the opportunity to share your experiences with someone in the same boat, particularly when it feels like no one else understands.
We are here to help you get the best out of being deaf, to realise their dreams and live life to the full and that’s why we’re Hear For You!
Can I attend just one session and pay $25?
No - this program is designed to take place over 4 sessions so the mentor-mentee relationship has a chance to grow organically over time. In addition, the themes of each session provide an important bridge over to the next one so we are able to cover a wide range of topics.
