Looking for a valuable and great way to explore the city this summer? Volunteer with us. We’re looking for young adults to serve as mentors for the visually impaired teens we serve. Our instructors will show you how to help these teens live more independently, get ready for work and explore their neighborhoods. Have questions?  Here are answers: 

Q: How long is the commitment? 
A: Just 3 weeks. 
Q: Can you be more specific? 
A: Sure can.  8/10/15 – 8/28/15, Monday – Friday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. 
Q: What’s involved? 
A: Each week,  you and the visually impaired teen will spend:

  • Two days at a job we matched the teen with.
  • Two days enjoying activities in the community.
  • One day at our main Catholic Guild for the Blind Office at 1011 First Ave. NY working on computer skills and training for work.

Q: Sounds like some travel.  Who pays for that? 
A: We do. Hurray!
