Summer Career Exploration Program For Students With Hearing Loss
The Explore Your Future (EYF) program at Rochester Institute of Technology’s National Technical Institute for the Deaf offers college-bound high school sophomores and juniors with hearing loss a unique opportunity to experience life on a college campus, explore their interests and sample various careers.
This six-day, summer career exploration program provides students with hands-on activities related to careers in engineering, art, business, computers, science and more. Hundreds of students from around the country participate in EYF each year.
EYF sessions for summer 2008 are July 19 to 24 and July 26 to 31. On the final day of each session, parents attend a workshop that helps them prepare their student for life after high school.
