Our Youth Mentors work with young Deaf people to guide and support them with making positive life choices. Our Youth Mentors often serve as positive Deaf role models and they can help to prepare young Deaf people for adult life.
Youth mentoring can help young Deaf people to avoid the negative social experiences that deafness can bring. Youth Mentors work with young Deaf people to support their transition into adulthood, to help them learn life skills, to find employment or training opportunities and to build better relationships with family and peers. Their Youth Mentor will be with them throughout their transition into adulthood and can help with a range of issues, including:
- Life skills (e.g. travelling and budgeting)
- Supporting young people with important decisions and life choices
- Supporting young people at risk of crime
- Supporting young people not in education, employment or training
- Facilitating socialising opportunities with Deaf peers
- Offering information and advice on drugs, alcohol, sex and gender reassignment
- Supporting with education or returning to education
- Supporting with the transition from school to college or college to work
- Providing information about the Deaf community and the Deaf identity
