October 14, 2021

Promoting Youth Development: Building Support Systems

September 23, 2021

At NDC, the experiences that deaf youth accumulate through school, work, and life are at the heart of the work we do. These experiences, some good and some bad, are one of the driving forces of how we think about ensuring #DeafSuccess while working to dismantle systemic barriers that have long existed for deaf youth.

This September, we want to spotlight learning and development. While some may think these important building blocks in the life of deaf youth are confined to the classroom setting, there are a number of factors throughout their life that help deaf youth excel.


Role Models Have a Big Impact on #DeafSuccess

September 21, 2021

Deaf role models offer support from a place of shared understanding and life experience. With deaf role models, deaf youth are more likely to strengthen socioemotional skills, self-determination, language skills, and explore more options after high school. They can also serve as aspirational goals for deaf youth, who often don’t see people like themselves in certain careers or portrayed in the media.
