Bringing States Together to Impact #DeafSuccess
This work is critical for systems change, and creates environments where people can thrive.
Tailored Solutions for Each State
State initiatives are guided by engagement with local stakeholders, research, best practices, and state data. Cross-state collaborative groups share strategies and receive NDC support at the annual two-day convening and throughout the year. State activities for deaf youth include:
- a summer camp focused on strengthening self-advocacy
- an online financial literacy course to develop independent living skills
- an internship fair to improve employment outcomes
