This year’s regional student seminar will be a weekend of fun, engagement, and information!
It’s all about the next step in your life, whatever that may look like: taking a step back, learning about options, and paving the path for your future. We will have experts from blindness training centers, working professionals, career guidance, college preparation, health & wellness, and so much more. This seminar gives students an invaluable tool: the power of networking. Both Friday and Saturday night, we will engage in activities and social events. With students traveling from neighboring states, the interactions you’ll experience will be unlike anything else!

In the National Federation of the Blind, Blind Americans work together to break down barriers so that we can live the lives we want.
