CCBVI programs are designed to help youth meet the challenges of everyday life. Through CCBVI’s unique blend of educational, social and recreational activities, integration and adaptive techniques, technology and immersion into a nurturing environment with peers, youth who are blind and visually impaired will gain new levels of confidence, moving forward to master even more milestones with the positive reinforcement of each new success. New experiences with friends is always more fun, and the comradery formed with other youth will build self-esteem and reduce feelings of isolation.
Each participant will gain emotional, social, recreational and educational tools that will allow them to succeed in their individual short and long-term goals and objectives. They will become well-rounded, successful, independent adults who contribute positively to their communities.
