Since 1900 Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind (CLB ) has been dedicated to helping the blind or visually impaired population of the greater Washington region overcome the challenges of vision loss. Our work enables people of all ages who are blind or visually impaired to remain independent, active, and productive in our society. The teen groups are programs for teens that are blind or visually impaired in DC Metro Area. The teen support groups provide participants with encouragement and experiences that have helped them to become more confident, socially adept and optimistic about their futures. The primary goal of the groups is to increase the self-esteem and independence of teens who are blind or visually impaired. In the long-term, CLB aims to improve graduation and employment rates of blind and visually impaired individuals by providing them with skills needed to compete with their sighted peers in school and, later, in the workplace. The objectives of the teen group programs are to: provide participants with the opportunity to share concerns and experiences with visually impaired peers who can understand and empathize; improve social and interpersonal relationships skills.
