Our Saturday Youth Skills Program provides social and recreational services to legally blind children ages 6 to 13 to help them build self-confidence.

Students gather monthly during the school year (October through May) to participate in enriching social and recreational activities including:

  • Drama to promote social integration and teamwork
  • Physical education ad martial arts to enhance strength and balance
  • “Edible” arts and crafts to foster self-expression and creativity
  • Community field trips to the park, museums and local businesses
