GBYS is a model family support program that provides UNBIASED SUPPORT to

GBYS provides parents with a Parent Guide “match” – a specially trained
parent of a deaf or hard of hearing child – who offers support,
encouragement, and guidance. Parent Guides are hearing, Deaf, or hard of
Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH) Guides are adults who are specially trained
to work with parents with newly identified babies, young children, or
teenagers who are deaf or hard of hearing. They provide invaluable
perspectives that come from direct personal experiences and help families
increase their awareness of and sensitivity to issues faced by individuals
who are deaf or hard of hearing. DHH Guides do NOT have to be parents
We are currently hiring individuals who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (DHH) to
be Guides! This is a part-time contract position through ERCOD.
