Our Story.

Access Vine is a training and outreach service focusing on a wide range of topics such as self-advocacy skill-building, career exploration, deaf culture awareness, and accessibility. The purpose of Access Vine is focused on improving accessibility for people who are deaf and hard of hearing. We will work with stakeholders around the nation to bring about our vision of a world where people who are deaf and hard of hearing are given equal opportunities in the labor market. We are unique because we focus on building up the confidence within other companies to be more culturally conscious and accepting of qualified applicants who are deaf and hard of hearing. Not only do we work with entities, but we work with people who are deaf or hard of hearing, who are of all ages on discovering their potential through identity development, personality assessment, career assessment, and building their brand.
