Our Mission is to provide children and youth who are blind or partially sighted with the necessary opportunities, experiences, services, and family/community support to reach their full potential.
About Blind Beginnings Society
Blind Beginnings envisions a world where seeing things differently inspires limitless potential for children and youth in BC who are blind or partially sighted. We provide experiential workshops, pre-employment training, summer camps, recreational activities and counselling. We promote equal access to resources and opportunities. We seek to challenge the limits of what is deemed possible for blind or partially sighted children and youth and to establish a strong foundation on which to build rich and fulfilling lives.

What People Are Saying
"I have always been afraid of public speaking because of my visual impairment and not knowing how to stand or where to look. At the Youth Leadership weekend, I was given strategies to make public speaking more comfortable, and I feel like I can more confidently stand in front of my classroom now."
— Youth Leader - age 15
