We believe that all deaf people can
thrive. grow. blossom.

As deaf people leave high school and prepare for college or careers, the National Deaf Center wants them to succeed. Our research shows that deaf people are not completing college degrees, getting jobs, or earning as much as hearing people.

We’re here to change that.
