DESCRIPTION

The Clarke Buddies Program is gearing up for another amazing year! With additional locations in Massachusetts available and now Philadelphia too, there are so many Meet Up opportunities! This program is a fun opportunity to meet, get to know, and connect on a regular basis with other kids who are deaf or hard of hearing! At our in-person meet-ups, you will be sharing advice and experiences, participate in team-building activities and build a sense of community. Older students can choose to be mentors and gain leadership and community experience while being a role model to a younger student.The goal of the “Buddies” program is to connect students who are deaf or hard of hearing and build a sense of community. By doing this, students can reduce feelings of isolation, create a sense of support and community among students with hearing loss, raise confidence, establish new friendships, develop a sense of identity, develop leadership skills, and gain advice about situations relating to hearing loss. The Buddies program is open to children ages 6-17 at the 4 Massachusetts locations and children 10-17 at the Philadelphia location. We look forward to having your child join us!
