Partnership - mentoring children and young people with hearing loss in schools

Skip Navigation LinksVictorian Deaf Education Institute > Professional Learning > Partnership - mentoring children and young people with hearing loss in schools
VDEI has been working with Hear for You and Deaf Children Australia to fund and promote brand new mentoring programs for primary and secondary school students. The overall aim of the program is to arm young people with enduring skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. It aims to motivate them to achieve their educational and employment ambitions, as they strengthen their identity and learn resilience to cope with everyday situations. Ultimately young participants will be supported to understand their potential for significant contribution to the community. Helen Harrington-Johnson is working with Nick Doyle and Meg Aumann (Hear for You) and Sue Izard (Deaf Children Australia) on programs.
