Change the Lives of Youth and Adults by Screening Vision!
Train with us to be a Certified Vision Screener, then volunteer for 20 hours in one year at schools and health fairs near you to help save sight; make connections with local schools, optometrists, and ophthalmologists; and make a difference in your community.
The times and dates you volunteer with us are entirely up to you! We are very flexible, and would love to have your help. Thank you!
1.Email Kirsten Turnbow at firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest
2. Go to a training performed by Friends for Sight! (Approximately 1-1.5 hours, scheduled after initial email)
3. Once your training is done, you can sign up for our schools, health fairs, and vision clinics based on the times you are available.
Volunteers will work with kids and adults in the community to check their eye sight. Although nothing replaces a doctor's visit, this screening can let someone know they have a problem with their sight, and they should visit a doctor soon. Youth who are referred through our screenings often see an improvement in their school work. Adults who are referred through our screenings often find out their vision is decreasing, either because of glaucoma or other serious eye problems.
