Sponsor a Student

Thank you for sponsoring a student or senior for our Annual Holiday Celebrations!

Please complete the application below to secure your registration. We will contact you shortly to provide the name, age (if applicable) and gender of the student or senior you have sponsored.

The students who are eligible to receive a gift are those who attend the Saturday Youth Skills Program and the Saturday Youth Transition Program.  In the Saturday Youth Skills Program (SYSP), school-aged boys and girls from ages 6 to 13, who are blind or visually impaired, come together to learn, play and socialize.

The Saturday Youth Transition Program at Lighthouse Guild is a weekly program for young people ages 14 to 21 who are visually impaired. The program provides students with the opportunity to develop skills for independence and future employment, while also having fun, making friends, being creative and staying active.

As a sponsor, you are asked to provide a personalized gift package that contains an age/gender/ability-appropriate gift item.

We would also gladly accept a financial donation for the purchase of a gift package for a student or a senior. To make a financial donation, please click here.
