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!).

Our Values

Our Mentoring Programs and Workshops

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!
