The Blind Ambition Project

Image depicting man with cane on an upward trajectoryThe Sight Center has been pilot-testing an employment-related program called The Blind Ambition Project for people who are blind or have low vision. This effort explores ways in which job-seekers can network with peers, gain valuable insights and acquire additional tools that can be used along the career path.


This pilot project will serve working-age adults with a vision impairment who reside in the metropolitan Toledo area. Specifically, the focus will be on those who are seeking to become newly employable, those who are trying to transition from a sighted career to a sight-impaired career, and those seeking to gain meaningful part-time employment while retaining current disability benefits.
