Our Volunteer Opportunities

Are you looking to share your time and make a difference in the lives of people with vision loss? Here are some ways we’re looking for support:

Children’s Program Volunteer: Support our students by keeping our classrooms clean, organized and ready-to-go for daily lessons. Volunteers may also participate in hands-on activities and special program events.

Community Groups: Gather your colleagues or classmates to complete a one-time project at Vision Forward. Ideas include campus beautification, hands-on work with youth and adult clients, and so much more!

Event Support: Provide prep and day-of event support to our many programmatic and special events, including Feast for the Senses, Vision Connections Conference, and our sports camp.
