Readers & Friendly Visitors
Participants in the Readers & Friendly Visitors program are adult volunteers who are matched one-on-one with adults and senior citizens who are blind or visually impaired. Volunteers arrange weekly meetings, or semi-monthly visits, with consumers at their homes or another mutually convenient location to assist with daily activities, such as reading mail, grocery shopping or running errands. Adult volunteers are required to complete a volunteer application with reference checks and participate in an evening orientation session.
Lighthouse Camp Counselors
Lighthouse Camp Counselors are primarily student volunteers who are matched one-on-one with children who are blind or visually impaired during Camp Lighthouse. Student volunteers assist campers with a variety of camp activities, including sports, arts and crafts, computer labs, swimming and field trips. Student volunteers must be 16 years of age, have completed at least one year of high school and are required to attend a camp orientation and training session.
Adult and student volunteers are needed throughout the year to assist with special events. CLB also offers opportunities for community groups to sponsor special events that benefit children who are blind or visually impaired and their families.
Volunteer support is periodically needed to assist CLB staff with assembly and distribution of event and donor information, data entry, and other office projects.
Teams of Adult Volunteers are needed to assist individuals who are blind or visually impaired.
Team Members will work together to determine weekly schedules for when each team member can individually assist their assigned adult with reading, grocery shopping, and other errands.
