Hear For You’s programs and workshops are the core of what we’re all about. These vary from four-day programs to one-hour sessions, and they’re held all over Australia. What’s important to know is that they’re all focused on the same thing: giving deaf teenagers support, guidance and the chance to meet some people who actually ‘get’ what they’re going through.
Not sure if our programs and workshops are for you?
Even if you’re deaf or hard of hearing, we get that as a teenager, you probably already have a busy life. Between school, friends and avoiding homework, you probably don’t have heaps of spare time – and you might not want to spend it in a roomful of deaf strangers.
If this is what you’re thinking, we only ask one thing: give it a chance before you rule it out. Even if you don’t think Hear For You is your kind of thing, you might be surprised by how much you get out of our programs and workshops. A lot of people turn up feeling pretty sceptical – but 9 out of 10 tell us they’re really glad they came.
You might meet someone awesome who you’d never have stumbled across in real life (or even online). You might solve a problem that’s been bugging you, or even get some clarity about your future. Whatever the case, it’s worth giving Hear For You a shot, promise!
Wondering what else we do?
As well as working with teenagers, Hear For You takes an active role in educating the community about the needs of deaf and hard of hearing young people. We run Community Outreach sessions for schools, teachers, audiologists, community groups and families. By working together, we can all create an environment where deaf and hard of hearing teenagers have the support they need to realise their potential and thrive!
