Designed for young adults aged 16 to 19 years, this program focuses on building self-confidence, social interaction, resilience and independence. Our Hear to Live Group Social Skills program aims to help you take an active role in advocating for yourself and provides guidance in seeking out appropriate supports as you become more independent.

This three-day workshop involves fun, challenge-based activities focusing on communication, problem-solving and understanding your hearing loss and hearing technology. It will also provide an opportunity to share your experiences with others in a similar situation.

All components of the program are essential to providing the best outcomes. Over the four days participants will develop friendships and valuable interpersonal skills which are reinforced and strengthened on day four 12 weeks later.
