Virginia Rehabilitation Center for the Blind and Vision Impaired (VRCBVI) Richmond, VA
Description: We are looking for someone who will have high expectations for blind and vision-impaired individuals and who believes that they can contribute on terms of equality with their sighted peers in the workplace and community. We want to hire someone who will work with our students to achieve their dreams based on their knowledge, skills, and abilities, rather than settling for a job because they believe this is all blind people can do.

Additional Information: VRCBVI offers training in the skills of blindness to blind and vision-impaired Virginians and encourages them to develop positive attitudes about their blindness. Our staff does an excellent job of challenging people to gain competency in the skills of blindness and in addressing misconceptions of blindness that are held by the general public and sometimes by the blind themselves. It is the goal of the VRCBVI training program to raise expectations, promote independence, and prepare our students to participate actively and successfully in the real world, which most definitely includes going to work! It is an exciting place to work and grow professionally!
