Mentoring Programs

Life Goals & Skills Metro (4 days)

Our flagship mentoring program, which focuses on bringing together deaf and hard of hearing teenagers with inspiring mentors. Through group, peer and one-on-one mentoring, we explore a whole range of topics, from communication & conflict resolution, to school and school subject choices and social media.

Life Goals & Skills Blast (2 days)

A shortened version of our flagship mentoring program, designed especially for teens living in regional and rural areas. Over two days, this workshop brings together deaf and hard of hearing teenagers with inspiring mentors – exploring a range of issues through group, peer and one-on-one mentoring. A great way to connect with people who just ‘get it’, in real life!

Primary2Secondary (2 sessions)

A unique two-part program that helps kids who are deaf or hard of hearing to make the transition from Year 6 to high school. We cover a range of things, from making new friends to dealing with bullying and simply finding your way round. Parents are welcome too (hey, someone’s gotta drive).

Workshops

Rock My World (1-2 days)

These one-off workshops all focus on a different thing – from film-making to treetop adventures. The common theme? Fun! (Hey, it should never be underrated). As well as taking part in interesting activities, you’ll also hear from a guest presenter and connect with mentors as part of the experience. Not a bad way to spend a day or two, right?
