Children and youth programs

Main Content

We’re helping young people with sight loss develop confidence, independence and a sense of self-identity through group programs, activities, family fun days and summer camps.

Beyond the classroom

Working with educators, families and community members, we’ll support you from pre-school through post-secondary life as you gain knowledge and develop social skills. We’ll ensure you have the coordinated services, confidence and independence to succeed at every stage. 

Youth empowerment 

Visit an amusement park, take in a theatre festival or get involved in mentorship with a group your own age. We’ll help you expand your leadership skills in a safe and inclusive environment while you make new friends.
