Deaf Role Models

Fantastic Opportunity – Deaf Role Models Project

Deaf Unity will be launching a Deaf Role Models project!

Do you know a fantastic deaf person who could be a Role Model and support other deaf people? Or maybe you are one?

Are you passionate about inspiring others to develop and reach their full potential?  Or do you know someone who is?

Think YOU or someone you know can motivate the next generation of deaf professionals to be ‘the best’ they can?

Deaf Role Models create momentum for all Deaf Learners to achieve their aspirations. This is your unique opportunity to be a part of ongoing development which will enhance the skills and talent in the deaf community as a whole.
