Life’s not easy when you’re a teenager – and if you’re deaf or hard of hearing, it can be even trickier. That’s why we established Hear For You. We’re a group of deaf people who have been in your shoes, and we want to make your bumpy teenage ride a little smoother. So, we run a range of programs and workshops that give teenagers like you the chance to connect, pick up new skills and strategies, find mentors and have a good time (yes really!).
Mentor and inspire young people who are deaf through evidence based programs and services that are accessible to all.
We strive to be professional, inclusive, enthusiastic, ethical, and progressive.
Reach 75% of deaf teenagers in Australia online or in-person
Hear For You’s activities are the core of what we’re all about. These vary from four-day mentoring programs to interactive one-day workshops, 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.
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!
