The mission of the SF LightHouse Youth Advocacy Group is to arm youth and their parents with the tools and resources needed to become more informed, prepared, engaged, and confident in all aspects of scholastic and social life.
This group is designed specifically for parents, middle school students, high school students, and college students (both undergraduate and post-graduate). The SF Youth Advocacy Group will leverage the positive attitudes, philosophy and beliefs of the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) as it relates to the abilities of the blind student, and the supportive role it has with parents. The SF Youth Advocacy Group is a proactive collaboration between the NFB San Francisco Chapter and SF LightHouse in order to offer a wide array of community-building and strengthening opportunities for blind and low vision youth and their families.
Some of the topics the advocacy group will cover include:
- College Life: life on the university and community college campus
- Rehabilitation: how to work with your counselor to get to your goals
- IEP 101(for students only): All you need to know about Individual Educational Programs (IEPs). An IEP is a blueprint for a student’s academic goals or educational path.
- Advocating for your child: tips, tricks and resources for parents of blind children
- Self-Advocacy: growing up and fitting in at middle school and high school (focus on developing age-appropriate habits and expectations for one’s self)
- Cane/guide dogs: pros and cons between these two methods of independent travel.
- Getting and staying active: how to get involved in sports and other physical and/or outdoor activities
- Community Service/Civic Engagement: how to become more involved in your community through volunteerism and activism
