Each year CTEBVI hosts a conference that brings blind and low vision students and their families together with the professionals who meet their educational and rehabilitation needs. Throughout this resource-rich weekend participants get the chance to connect with peers and learn about the latest and greatest. The Youth Institute helps youth to do just that while connecting with peers.
The day will be filled with interactive activities and challenges that will address concepts that are important to youth such as technology, navigation, and networking. Each lesson will be led by professionals and a group of mentors who are also blind or have low vision.
This year’s Youth Institute is open for all blind and low vision students in the K-12 school system, as well as our transition age college students that are under the age of 22. To register for the Youth Institute, please complete the online form linked here.
