Youth and Family Connections – Community Support
YFC offers several opportunities for children and families in the community!
- An overnight camping trip. A chance to see a professional sporting event. Breakfast with Mr. and Mrs. Deaf Santa. These and many more activities are offered throughout the year, enabling Deaf, DeafBlind, and Hard of Hearing children to interact with one another and build community. Shared group experiences also teach communication skills to help youth of all ages get along with others regardless of differences in age, gender, race, ability, etc. Group interactions also help young adults learn to make good choices and become leaders – and they’re fun, too!
- Parent Meet-Ups are bi-monthly webinars about topics related to deafness. They give families an opportunity to learn from experts and to realize that they have a community behind them. Previous topics include Deaf Autism, Special Education Rights, and Language Acquisition.
