Volunteering as a Friend of Sight at CABVI

Friends of Sight Page Smiling StudentAt CABVI, we have many volunteer opportunities including consumer visitation and transportation, technology assistance, activities for adults and children, special events, and clerical work. We also offer student service requirements, internships and practicums.

If you seek a greater challenge, you can complete our training program to become a vision screener of preschool-aged children. You may also learn how to transcribe text into Braille through the Mohawk Valley Braille Transcribers.

To be a Friend of Sight is to be part of something very special, and together, we will find an opportunity that’s right for you.
