Teenage Volunteers Needed for Blind & Vision Rehabilitation Services Summer Program

Blind & Vision Rehabilitation Services of Pittsburgh is in need of teenage volunteers for its summer youth program, from June 30 to Aug. 1, which helps young adults who are blind or vision impaired prepare for college or a career. Teenage volunteers accompany students to places like Kennywood, Pirate baseball games, Sandcastle and Camp Kon-O-Kwee, or just spend time with them in the evening. Volunteer schedules are flexible, and training is provided.

For more information, contact Nancy Schepis, volunteer coordinator, at 412-368-4400 ext. 3430 or [email protected].
