VIStars

VIStars is a non-profit organization in Massachusetts that provides after-school programs for students who are blind or visually impaired. Their mission is to create safe, accessible and stimulating environments where students can acquire skills related to their unique visual needs. They promote social interaction with other students with visual impairments while exposing the group to recreation and leisure activities, independent living skills, career education and leadership skills.  Their goal is for the students to transfer the skills they learn at VIStars to their individual school and community experiences.  Check out their website:  http://www.vistars.org   Especially note the video of Precious, a visually impaired young lady, singing “I will Never Ever Live Without My Cane”:  http://www.vistars.org/?p=369

Thanks for sharing this website. Glad to hear that your after school program for blind and visually impaired students is successful. I wonder what is the main source of funding? Is their an age range to attend? Must share this idea with our local Center here in York, PA. It appears to be a very active place and I love the photos for the kids displaying their projects. What are the girls’ making with their canes?
