Aug 10 –
Second Monday of the month: 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
This fall, LightHouse’s Youth Program is excited to offer a new series for our youth that are blind or have low vision. In this new monthly series, Lighthouse staff will lead the panel of young blind leaders through a conversation about topics important to the success of youth. Each month will have new mentors sharing their thoughts, stories and advice about that month’s topic. Students that attend will also have ample time to ask questions to that month’s mentors. Topics of our monthly panel will include subjects such as advocacy, career exploration, social interaction, self-determination, accessible technology and recreation and leisure, with a focus on the additional challenges the COVID-19 pandemic has given all of us.
August 10 topic: Maximizing your Zoom and virtual learning experience
With most schools starting in the coming weeks, our August panel will focus on everything Zoom related and address other platforms youth will be using to access their class lessons and materials during distance learning.
September 14: New school year, new challenges and new opportunities
October 12: Your Virtual Technology Toolbox
November 9: Making connections as a blind or low vision student
December 14: TBD
