Our Independence Training Program (ITP) is designed for blind adults (18 years of age and older). Typically students complete the program in six to nine months while residing in nearby McGeorge Mountain Terrace apartments, which are owned by the Center.
The Summer Youth Programs at the Colorado Center for the Blind are designed to provide students with the opportunity to obtain skills needed to achieve success in school, interact with peers in a variety of social situations, gain a knowledge of the working world, and build self-confidence and self-esteem.
The Colorado Center for the Blind works to change the experience of older blind and visually impaired persons from frustration to independence. With education and training seniors can and do obtain the skills and confidence necessary to stay in their own homes and continue be contributing members of their communities.
As part of our Independence Training Program, the Colorado Center for the Blind offers a College Prep course to those students interested in going on to college or in returning to college after training at the Center.
