About the event


Please join the H&V O.U.R. Children’s Safety Project for building a community of support and safety. First-time attendees are always welcome!

We’ll close our O.U.R. Project Year with a discussion about the Vook Club and how organizations are using it. If that term is new to you, it’s a good time to join! We’ll take a look at what we will do as parents and as parent leaders for our organizations this summer in regard to children’s safety.

Please register for this meeting so we can track participants and ensure accessibility needs.

What is O.U.R. Children Safety Project - (Observe, Understand, and Respond)?

Hands & Voices has created a Community of Learners, comprised of parents, family members and professionals, to explore and develop activities to increase the safety and success of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. This welcoming and inclusive community of learners values participation from Hands & Voices leadership including GBYS and ASTra program staff along with the larger community. Through discussion and critical reflection, the group focuses on issues to increase awareness and understanding surrounding prevention of child maltreatment for deaf, hard of hearing and deaf/hh plus children. Together, members of O.U.R. identify and determine action steps that support others in their own communities that serve to observe and respond to instances of abuse, neglect and bullying, as well as cohesively work to enhance policies for prevention within the systems of care serving D/HH children and families. The O.U.R Children Safety Project incorporates the foundation and mission of Hands & Voices, and as such guides the message of prevention throughout Hands & Voices state and provincial Chapters in order to carry out the work that enables deaf, hard of hearing and deaf plus children to reach their highest potential.

Please join us and feel free to share this information with others!
