One of the philosophies of the Association is that "Deaf teach the Deaf"
  The Association identifies young Deaf adults, who show the potential for leadership, to be trained and
  mentored as Deaf development workers
  The Deaf Development workers play an integral role in the Life Skills, Deafness Awareness and Basic
  Sign Language Training programmes
  The long-term goal of the "Train the Trainer" programme is to train Deaf leaders who then in turn train
  other Deaf leaders and will serve as positive role models within the larger Deaf community in the province
