Thank You to Our Volunteers Coast to Coast
Thanks to all who have worked on behalf of HLAA and people with hearing loss.

Since 1979, our organization has enjoyed the volunteer service of thousands giving their time and talents. The HLAA Chapters and State Organizations are wholly volunteer led and run. The Walk4Hearing depends on people stepping up to chair the Walks, form teams, and help out with many aspects of the Walk4Hearing. The HLAA Board of Trustees is 100 percent volunteer driven. Because of your millions of volunteer hours, we can fulfill HLAA’s mission of providing information, education, support and advocacy.



If you are looking to gain valuable skills and experience in a nonprofit organization, then consider applying for an internship at HLAA! This is an unpaid internship at the HLAA national office in Bethesda for credit only. Interns will be compensated for parking when coming to the office.
