Ways to help

Academy Volunteer

Anyone, age 15 and over, can volunteer as a sighted guide on Saturdays to assist students in many different ways, including ensuring smooth transitions to and from classrooms. We also welcome volunteers to prepare teachers lunches, clean up and to assist at special events. High school students can receive community service hours for the time volunteered at AMB. This is a wonderful opportunity to interact with blind children and learn about their challenges and their remarkable strengths.
