POPDHH collaborates with school districts and private schools to provide student events in various regions. The focus of these events is for students to develop a sense of community and identity with other Deaf and Hard of Hearing students in nearby communities. We provide presentations with a focus on the BC curricular competencies of positive personal and cultural identity, communication and critical thinking. We also provide learning opportunities with Deaf and Hard of Hearing role models who use various modes of communication.
