White Cane Safety Day
This program is held every October 15. YACB partners up with ForSight Vision at a selected location to either pass out flyers, cards or give demonstrations. The media is always welcome to interview and ask questions about this project as it is important to educate the public on the white cane. Those approached are encouraged to do a white cane demonstration as well as feel comfortable asking questions.
Recruiting New Members (Members & Officers Only)
if you know of a group interested in wanting to get involved with our organization why not recruit them. Once you become a member you are encouraged to get the word out about our group and our efforts to help those with blindness and visual impairment. There are many ways to do this. Word of mouth is one way but chances are people might be reluctant. The way to get over this obstacle is by handing them a brochure (you obtain this by requesting copies from our publications comittee.). Then invite them to help out at an event or a project. Either way if comfortable or still unsure have they come to a monthly regular meeting. There those interested or have questions can get more of a better idea as to what YACB is about.
Accessible arts is a way in getting the blind and visually impaired in enjoying things that are accessible. These items can be sports (example: beep baseball, goal ball), art in general or drama via descriptive plays. We have located one area in town who does descriptive plays. As of now Dream Wrights is doing descriptive childrens plays. For more information go to DreamWrights Youth & Family Theatre's website at: http://www.dreamwrights.org/.
