Welcome to the DbI Youth Network (DbIYN). This new network provides an international platform from which young deafblind people will inspire others, share views, develop ideas and influence policy makers. DbIYN recognises that youth transitioning from childhood to adulthood are at a very important developmental stage of life.

The Network will enable young deafblind people to support one another to gain skills and develop their confidence. DbIYN will actively encourage young people to share their achievements and work together to find solutions to the challenges young deafblind people face. They will be able to work together through social media and at DbI events. This will bring young deafblind people from many countries together to share views that have been shaped by their respective cultural backgrounds.

There are serious aspirations for this Network but there will be plenty of opportunities for fun, enjoyment and friendship. We believe that through membership of the DbIYN young deafblind people will bring new perspectives for DbI to consider and benefit from.
