The end of the year is often a time of reflection and looking back on the things that impacted us the most. In 2021, many of us were challenged to find ways to adapt to life after a year of lockdown, disconnection, and isolation. During this time, many people turned to NDC to help them navigate a variety of issues that act as barriers to #deafsuccess.

In case you missed it, below are the most common questions for the top 6 content areas we received this past year and a list of resources we provided in response.

Strategies on Mentorship for Deaf Youth from Long-Time Mentors

October 26, 2021

Connecting with a mentor can be a life-changing experience. Positive mentoring experiences are mutually beneficial and have lasting influence on both the mentee, mentor, and even the mentee’s family members. These mentoring opportunities offer valuable experiences that contribute to personal, academic, and career development for deaf youth. Yet, the number of opportunities or experiences for mentoring are limited. This is especially true for deaf youth with multiple identities, like deaf-blind, deaf who are oral, deaf people of color, deaf disabled, deaf LGBTQ+ people, and many more.
