Outreach Support

Would you like BC Buddies, a workshop, or simply a hard of hearing young adult in your community?  Now, we can bring the activities to you through our outreach initiative, available on Fridays and Saturdays.  Examples of activities can include, but are not limited to:

  • BC Buddies (for ages 10 to 15)
  • Interactive workshops – topics are dependent on the demographics, interest and needs
    • Possible topics:
      • building communication and self-advocacy skills for employment and leadership (for ages 13 and above)
      • overview of available hearing assistive technology (for all age groups)
  • 1:1 conversations with a hard of hearing young adult

What PSP will do:

  • Take the lead in planning of the activity with consultation from the host community
  • Create an event flyer and manage the registration process
  • Arrange facilitators/presenters for the activity
  • Cover costs for accessibility, activity supplies and travel of facilitators/presenters

As you know your community the best, we will appreciate your assistance in the following:

  • Select a local venue, preferably one that is free of charge (e.g., school, community centre)
  • Arrange and cover costs of food/drinks for participants
  • Advertise the event in your local network
