Jan 8

Starting in the fall of 2021, the LightHouse Youth Program will be hosting a new series called Cooking Creates Community. This monthly virtual cooking lesson and conversation will be led by LightHouse staff and a rotating guest mentor that is blind or low vision and who has a passion for cooking, baking or anything food related. This class will be a chance for blind and low vision students to learn some basic independent cooking skills at home from cool mentors that may have invaluable wisdom to share about questions students might have, all wile connecting with peers and deepening the connections to their blind and low vision communities both near and far.

Our Cooking Creates Community series will run between an hour and an hour and a half starting at 1:00 pm on the second Saturday of the month. Those that sign-up for the program will be sent via email the list of equipment, supplies, recipes, and the zoom link they will be using for the program. If students can sign up by the 4th of each month LightHouse will mail the ingredients for that month’s recipe to their home. Marshmallow Yams and Pineapple.

Who: Middle and Highschool students who are blind or have low vision

What: Virtual cooking lesson and conversation led by blind and low vision mentors about how we get creative in the kitchen

When: Second Saturday of the month at 1:00pm

Where: Anywhere you can access a zoom meeting

During the last few years of teen session at EHC, our youth have been lucky to have a group of wood workers inspire our campers to take up the hobby. In order to encourage youth to further their excitement around this craft, the LightHouse Youth Program will be hosting a monthly virtual wood polishing club. In addition to making space for EHC and LightHouse friends to connect while polishing wood into art, we will invite a woodworker who is blind or has low vision to join us and share their story and share wisdom with the next generation of artiest. Students that sign up for the program will receive the basic materials and equipment to get started with wood polishing. Those students that remain active in the program and improve their skill will become eligible for additional raw materials that they can turn into art or gifts for loved ones. The polishing party takes place on the second Saturday of the month at 7:00pm. Each gathering will have time dedicated to update others about their projects, learn a little about that month’s mentor, and most importantly have as much time as the evening will allow to hangout and polish with your blind and low vision friends.

Who: Teens and young adult students who are blind or low vision

What: Virtual gathering space for young wood workers to connect with their EHC friends and other blind and low vision woodworkers from all over

When: Second Saturday of the month at 7:00pm

Where: Anywhere you can access a zoom meeting

Students who sign up for the program at least one week in advance will receive the basic materials and equipment to get started with wood polishing. Those students that remain active in the program and improve their skill will become eligible for additional raw materials that they can turn into art or gifts for loved ones.
