Youth Programs

We’re all looking forward to the summer of 2021 when we can get outdoors and, as necessary, still socially-distance. The National Federation of the Blind’s BELL In-home Edition will be offered again, and the Colorado Center for the Blind will shortly announce its summer offerings, which we hope will be a mix of virtual and in-person classes, conditions permitting,. Be sure to contact Youth Director Martin Becerra-Miranda, mbecerra@cocenter.org if you have any questions about programs for blind youth.

Year-round Youth Programs

You won’t want your kids to miss it!

FAST stands for Fun Activities and Skills Training. This program will meet the second Saturday of each month throughout the school year. Some Saturdays we will simply focus on having fun as we develop skills. Other Saturdays we will participate in a variety of challenge recreation activities.
