We are inviting deaf and hard of hearing youth aged 12-15 from across Australia to join us for a free session where you will be able to connect to mentors and peers in this unusual time. Join us for a casual chat, take part in activities, learn from our mentors and discuss what you are going through in lockdown and Covid restrictions. But also have fun, and meet new people! This is a FREE event.

Description

Virtual Bubble is aimed at deaf and hard of hearing 12 - 15 year old youth from all around Australia. This casual get together will help you create connections and provide a breath of fresh air.

Over this unique session, participants will get to discuss their lives, what it means to be deaf and hard of hearing in times of Covid restrictions, enjoy activities prepared by our wonderful mentors and have a chat about anything they want.

Our 2 friendly deaf mentors will facilitate the session. They have lived experience and are passionate about supporting young people, to help them build self-esteem and to reach their goals.

A bilingual environment of Auslan and spoken English is offered to support all forms of communication. An Auslan interpreter will be present. Live captions are available when required.

Virtual Bubble takes place via Zoom and runs on AEDT time.
