A fantastic and very valuable program. Programs like this help to validate the young deaf person’s worth, improve self-esteem, networks and provide ‘lived’ experiences that teenagers can relate to. I very much appreciate it. Thank you!


Coming to Hear for You was strange at first, but I made friends quickly and felt like the mentors really understood how I felt and what I was going through.


Lachlan and I are so thankful for the awesome opportunities you all are making available for him and all the other kids involved in the program.  Thank you so much!!


My experience with the ‘Hear for You’ team was excellent because it helped me to feel stronger about myself and this allowed me to go ahead and apply for the perfect position and not worry about negative outcomes because at last I had a go.  I would like to than everyone at ‘Hear for You’ for their great program which really helps make a difference.


Just knowing that everyone that surrounded me was deaf just like myself was amazing.  I felt that everyone understood each other and shared stories we never thought anyone else would understand.


You get to meet legendary mentors, make new friends and eat pizza!
