Deaf Aotearoa’s Youth service develops the potential of Deaf and hard-of-hearing youth as individuals and as a group, by providing:
- a transition programme to guide young people into work or study
- a youth intern programme
- activities to develop strong Deaf identities and leadership skills.
NZSL in schools – Youth Project
Zoe Ferguson and Cory Myatt were employed as NZSL interns at the Office for Disability Issues in 2020. As part of the youth project, they were asked to share how the use of NZSL has shaped their identity and experiences at school.
