A six-day, summer career awareness program to help deaf and hard-of-hearing high school juniors plan for life after high school will happen this summer at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf at Rochester Institute of Technology. NTIDís Explore Your Future (EYF) program gives students the opportunity to experience college life, perform hands-on activities as they learn about different career choices such as engineering, business and computers, and have fun exploring their options.

EYF will offer two sessions, one from July 17-22 and the other from July 24-29. On the final day of each session, parents are invited to attend a workshop to get tips that will help them prepare their students for college.

For an application or more information, contact the EYF Program Coordinator at 585-475-2087 (voice/TTY) or e-mail at ambnes@rit.edu. Application deadline is June 1.

NTID is the first and largest technological college in the world for deaf and hard-of-hearing students. One of eight colleges of RIT, NTID offers educational programs and access and support services to 1,100 deaf and hard-of-hearing students from around the world who study, live and socialize with 14,400 hearing students on RITís Rochester, N.Y., campus.
