Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities:

Cleveland Sight Center deeply values the support of our volunteer community. Through our ongoing volunteer opportunities, individuals commit to regular volunteer roles that support and uplift our programs and services and enhance the experiences those who are blind or low vision have at Cleveland Sight Center.

Click below to learn about available opportunities:

  • Share the Vision: For those who are well-adjusted to blindness or low vision, share advice and support to encourage those new to vision loss.

Volunteer Projects:

For those who are unable to commit to ongoing volunteer positions, Cleveland Sight Center offers volunteer projects that do not require continuous commitment beyond the completion of defined projects. Those who support volunteer projects contribute to Cleveland Sight Center's mission in critical ways, providing resources that fuel our programs and deeply impact our clients.

Volunteer Groups:

CSC hosts volunteer groups of 2-60 to assist with a variety of projects at our organization. Whether working to clean our preschool, outside to prepare the grounds of our camp, adapt materials, or help with events, volunteer groups support hands on and behind the scenes projects that are critical to the success of our organization. To learn more about arranging group volunteer projects contact Melissa at the volunteer office: mmauk@clevelandsightcenter.org, 216-658-4581. Note: Some group project hosting availability may be impacted due to Covid-19.
