FAST and Zoom, Zoom and FAST: Our FAST Program for Blind Youth goes virtual This Friday!
Editor’s Note: Here’s some news from Youth Director Martin Becerra-Miranda. He’s been busy hosting lots of Zoom meetings for our staff and ITP students for the past month. But he’s also had time to think about what he wants to do with our FAST (Fun Skills Activities and Training) for youth, and maybe, just maybe, he misses the real energy of working with kids. So we’re going virtual with FAST starting this Friday!
Blind students of all ages and their family members

Grateful That Lives Change at the Colorado Center for the Blind #COGives
There’s a lot to be thankful for at the Colorado Center for the Blind. As many families like yours will do today as they gather around the table, our staff and students shared what we were thankful for at our CCB family’s Thanksgiving feast one week ago. Not surprisingly, we are all grateful for one another and the Colorado Center for the Blind.
For our students, they expressed gratitude for the bonds of friendship and support they now share with both their instructors and fellow students, bonds that will last far past the day each student receives his or her Freedom Bell at graduation.… Read the rest “Grateful That Lives Change at the Colorado Center for the Blind #COGives”
Turkeys and Ten Years of Colorado Gives Day #CoGivesDay
Colorado Gives Day 2019 is December 10, and it’s the tenth year of this highly successful program to encourage online giving to Colorado nonprofits like the Colorado Center for the Blind. And were proud that we’ve been a part of Colorado Gives Day from the very first!
Sure, we’ll gratefully accept donations any day, any time, but Colorado Gives Day on December 10 gives all of us some distinct advantages. Let’s mention, um, 10 of them!
- This is the giving season, and Colorado Gives Day comes at the time of year many of us are already thinking about giving.

This year, on November 23, we will hold our own Thanksgiving get together, FAST style that is.
CCB Seeks Blind Colorado Youth to Go to DC in February
Early each year, more than 500 blind Americans tap their canes across Capitol Hill in the District of Columbia to keep appointments at the offices of every member of Congress. It is the Washington Seminar of the National Federation of the Blind, and it is how we make our legislative concerns and priorities known to those who have been elected to serve us. It is how we, the blind, make our voices heard, and doing so is the foundation of our democracy.
For the 2020 Washington Seminar, The Colorado Center for the Blind will assist up to 3 blind Colorado high school students to travel with the National Federation of the Blind of Colorado to the annual Washington Seminar February 10-13, 2019.… Read the rest “CCB Seeks Blind Colorado Youth to Go to DC in February”
