CCB Summer Jobs


Every summer at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, blind youth learn and grow
in confidence that they can live the lives they want.  You can be a part of
this summer - a summer neither your students nor you will ever forget!
The Colorado Center for the Blind is now accepting applications from
positive blind role models to be residential counselors and class room
instructors in our 2017 summer programs.  We offer 3 programs: Summer for
Success College Prep Program, Earn and Learn High School Program and the
Initiation to Independence Middle School Program (three weeks only). 
Staff must be available May 30 through August 11.  
Applicants must have excellent oral and written communication skills, be
competent in the alternative skills of blindness, be well rounded, flexible,
and willing to lead by example.  Successful candidates will be excited to
work with blind students ages 11 to 20, and willing to show leadership in
our Challenge recreation activities.  Staff and students will go rock
climbing, hiking, canoeing, white water rafting, attend martial arts classes
and much more.  In addition, all staff and students will attend the national
convention of the National Federation of the Blind in Orlando July 10 to 15!
To learn more, watch our summer program video:
To apply, please submit a letter of interest indicating whether you would
like to teach Braille, Tech, Home Management or Cane Travel; how your skills
and interests would be an asset to our summer programs; and how working in
our summer program fits (or doesn't fit) into your long-term goals.  Send
your letter of interest to Martin Becerra at mbecerra at cocenter.org.  You can
also call Martin at 303-778-1130, x 223 for more information.
