Looking for a program that is FUN and promotes INDEPENDENCE?
Freedom Link is a program for blind and visually impaired students, grades 7 – 12. This transition program offers students the opportunity to enhance their blindness skills while working with blind mentors. Students and mentors take fun and exciting excursions, engage in hands-on learning, and participate in many other rewarding activities! Participants will discover abilities and confidence they didn’t know they had as they build friendships with other blind and visually impaired students! Sarah, a Freedom Link Student says, “I learned so much and I love being mentored by people who are visually impaired and have gone through some of the things I am going through.”
Meetings are held once a month on a Saturday from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. in downtown Chicago. This transition program is TOTALLY FREE. Freedom Link starts in October for our 2016-2017 program. For additional information or to apply, contact:
