Unemployment is one of the most profound issues facing the blindness community, so Junior Blind launched a unique program that helps individuals who are blind or visually impaired become successfully employed.
Through our Employment Services, we offer our students an assessment, training and placement, as well as job coaching and Orientation & Mobility (white cane) instruction related to finding and keeping a job. With the proper skills training and resources, our students can become more confident, more competitive and, eventually, gainfully employed.
Junior Blind has a new, state-of-the-art training center located on our Los Angeles campus with dedicated, knowledgeable staff ready to help students achieve their goals.
Junior Blind's Employment Services program staff members are proficient in assistive technology and have extensive experience working with those who are blind or visually impaired.
Students must reside in California to receive services.
Students must be eligible to receive assistance from the California Department of Rehabilitation.
