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! Ali, who is finishing her junior year of high school, says, “I like the Freedom Link program because it is helping me gain confidence, especially in my ability to travel independently.”
Meetings are 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 September 24, 2011.
