Description

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

This is a special version of our Hear For You Rock My World Program which will be run over two Saturdays in March and April. Rock My World is all about getting the teens out and about on excursions with other deaf teens like themselves. This particular program 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.


March 17th - Trampoline Park at Flip Out, Albury

April 28th - Escape Room, Albury.

The Workshops are scheduled to run from 10am - 3pm


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


If you really like these workshops, then why not come to the Albury/Wodonga Life Goals & Skills Blast later on in 2018 too??

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