About Us

Ear Peace Save Your Hearing Foundation's goal is to prevent hearing loss in young people.

Our mission: to make young people aware of the problem of noise-induced hearing loss and motivate them to protect their hearing. Our primary targets are children and young adults. However, we hope our message will reach people of all ages.

The Problem: One out of five U.S. teenagers suffers noise-induced hearing loss by the age of 19. Most young people are unaware of the problem because it usually occurs gradually over many years. This hearing loss is irreversible. It is also preventable.
