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.
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.

This exciting free summer program for young people with sight loss ages 16 to 21 brings youth from across the country together to build independence and work on employment and academic readiness. There’s no charge for flights, accommodation or meals for those chosen to take part.
