Youth Hang Out
The Youth Hangout It is an interactive experience that allows youth (ages 10-18) to share and their experiences, challenges, and successes. Whether youth wish to contribute their powerful words or attend as a listener, this program is a great opportunity to connect with the community, to make friends, to be heard, to inspire, to be supported and to shine brighter. The virtual social takes place on the fourth Sunday of every month from 7 to 8 p.m. Newfoundland Time. Call in information will be given upon registration.
Back to School with CNIB’s National Youth Council
Heading back to school can be an incredibly stressful time for students living with sight loss and their families. It’s time to meet new teachers, explain your vision loss and the necessary accommodations you require, arrange for technology/assistance, and get settled into a new environment.
The traditional school system is not one that was built for people with disabilities, specifically those living with sight loss. We have constantly had to change and adapt to fit in with everyone else. From accommodation letters to private testing spaces to segregated learning, we’ve had it all.
