Changing Vision Changing Life – 2021 Virtual Edition
Changing Vision Changing Life (CVCL) is for those who are new to blindness or having low vision and want to get a full overview of the essential training that will be beneficial for work, home, school and life. Students will be with a cohort of up to ten peers. CVCL starts with a day of thinking and grows into a week of learning, connecting and doing.
This one-week course runs every day with all classes are on Zoom. In addition to the week of training, there will be an Orientation Session Friday, February 19 from 2:00-4:00 and a follow-up meetup on Friday March 5, from 10:00 am to noon after the conclusion of the course. During the training week, there are three, two-hour learning sessions every day except Friday the 26. Each day of training begins at 9:30am and ends at 7:30pm with breaks for lunch and dinner. For three mornings, students who are truly morning people will have the option to start their day even earlier with yoga.
This week-long course is designed for adults who desire a deep introduction to independent living through travel (Orientation & Mobility), Access Technology, and Independent Living Skill and who also want a venue to have rich discussion with peers and our professional staff about the opportunity and choices that are ahead. Everyone will receive a packet of materials to enhance learning throughout the week and we will end the week with a morning cooking session (in students’ own kitchens) and lunch together.
If you are a Consumer of Vocational Rehabilitation, in California or any other state, you will need an authorization from your Rehabilitation Counselor as there is a fee for the course. If you are not with Vocational Rehabilitation and you are age 55 and older, living in the counties of San Francisco, San Mateo, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity, there is no charge for instruction, however there is a materials fee of $40.
To participate, all students must be able to make a commitment to all sessions (including the pre-Orientation and post-course meetup). You do not have to have a computer to participate via Zoom, but you must have a reliable speaker phone (smart phone or landline) to participate and call in.
Registration is required and the deadline to register is Tuesday, February 16, 2021. To register, please contact Debbie Bacon, DBacon@lighthouse-sf.org or Janet Pomerantz (Humboldt, Trinity and Del Norte residents), JPomerantz@lighthouse-sf.org.
