BDA's Deaf Roots & Pride project provides mentoring support from Deaf role models and group activities for deaf children and young people aged between 8 and 20. DRP aims to support them to see the positives in their deaf identities and to build their confidence and aspirations in negotiating key transitions and preparing for adult life.
We believe that access to Deaf role models, activities involving other deaf children and families, and providing support in British Sign Language are all crucial in empowering vulnerable deaf children.
Due to the continued success of the Project, we are looking for new Mentors to join the DRP teams in Wales, Devon, and the Midlands. If you think you can be a positive Deaf role model for young people and want to empower them to become the best versions of themselves, head on over to our Current Opportunities page.
