"The Mentors were great. Good to see friendly role models, especially for children in regional centres who don't meet many!"
Stay Connected is for everyone who has attended a Get Connected. You'll connect with your friends again, build on the social connections and engage in more fun activities.
Our passionate mentors Victor and Tayla will return to inspire you.
Stay Connected is led by two deaf mentors. Auslan and spoken English is available to help you along with live captions.
Stay Connected will be coming back in 2022!

This is what people said about Get Connected
"I enjoyed meeting other deaf kids, learnt a lot about the deaf community and made new friends."
"The mentors were amazing, they listened, and knew what it is like in a deaf world."
“You don’t have to improve Get Connected. It’s a great Zoom class! I love getting connected with you!”
Why you'll want to Stay Connected
"I think it is very beneficial for my son to have access to mentors with a hearing loss as he currently only has peers. Particularly to hear about their experiences and help feel part of the broader deaf community."
