Student Service Volunteers

Student Service Volunteers assist our blind and visually impaired students while they train with their new guide dog in Yorktown Heights, New York. Local residents are needed to support the students in a number of ways, including

  • escorting students to local malls and/or events
  • shopping for personal items with, or for, the students
  • driving students to medical appointments, church services, etc.
  • assisting with lunchtime meal service

These volunteer opportunities are a perfect fit for someone with a warm and outgoing personality and a genuine interest in meeting new people from varied backgrounds. Student Service volunteers receive sensitivity training so they can interact confidently and comfortably with our students, and ongoing staff support is always available.
To participate in the Student Services Program, applicants must:

  • be 18 or older and able to make a long term commitment
  • successfully complete our Blindness Awareness and Sensitivity training
  • be able to work at the Yorktown Heights, New York  location
