“After I finish my hour at CVI, I feel a high that is indescribable. I feel I have personally made a difference in people’s lives – at least for that day.”- Ron

Looking to make a difference in someone’s life? Consider volunteering with CVI with the STARS program this summer. Students ages 12-18 are eligible to be summer BUDDY GUIDES. Buddy guides serve as sighted guides and assistants to the blind and visually impaired youth during daily programming activities. Buddy guides are expected to be highly motivated and to serve as positive role models for STARS participants. Find your application here!
