Blind Beginnings

Give Now To Double Our Potential

Double the impact of your support!
A very generous supporter of Blind Beginnings has offered to match donations up to $5000! This is a wonderful opportunity to see your donation have twice the impact in support of our Youth Leadership & Pre-Employment program helps youth increase independence and employability through skills training and practical experience.

Breaking through barriers

In Canada, the unemployment rate for blind adults is close to 75%. Why?

  • There are no employment training programs specifically designed for the visually impaired.
  • Youth who are blind often have lower self-confidence than their sighted peers.
  • Youth who are blind often grow up believing they have more employment limitations than they actually do.

Blind Beginnings is seeking to break through these barriers by working with children and youth who are blind or partially sighted to teach them that the possibilities for their careers and life success are limitless—if they can only see their own potential and build on it.

Our sincere thanks to Cadillac Fairview for offering to match funds raised in the Give Now To Double Our Potential campaign. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Since 2008, Blind Beginnings Society has envisioned a world where seeing things differently inspires limitless possibilities for BC’s blind and partially sighted children.

Through educational and experiential workshops, pre-employment and leadership training, camps, recreational activities and individualized counselling, the organization offers these youth opportunities to develop skills, confidence and independence to reach their full potential.
