Fostering Leadership since 1996
Leadership Opportunities For Teens (LOFT) is a program dedicated to shaping and transforming the lives of deaf and hard of hearing teens by teaching them valuable skills. Among these skills are self-advocacy, self-confidence, leadership, and communication. They also learn to work closely with other people in a way they may not have been able to do before. Part of what makes AG Bell's LOFT program so important to these teens is the everlasting bond they establish with their peers. The teens come to the program for five days and make friends for life. The 2018 edition of LOFT will be held in Washington, D.C.
