The Gallaudet University Peer Mentoring Certificate Program is a certificate program designed to help train deaf, hard-of-hearing, and late-deafened individuals in meeting the diverse needs of individuals with hearing loss. Individuals will be trained to provide information, support, empathy, validation, and skills to consumers in need. Peer mentors will also be able to conduct needs assessments, problem-solve, and establish goals and objectives to improve the quality of life for these individuals. Lastly, peer mentors will help to establish effective use of assistive hearing technology, and ensure equal and appropriate access to communication.
