Be the first in line to apply for a staff position at the 2016 EYE
Retreat. The 2016 EYE Retreat will be Friday, July 22 to Saturday,
July 30 in Raleigh, NC. The EYE Retreat is now in its 8th year and
provides college preparation and career readiness training for youth with
visual impairments. In 2015, we served 51 individuals from 2 countries and
8 states. You can find out more about us at www.eyeretreat.org.
Participant applications for students are not yet available, but we
generally have a wait list by March of each year.
For our staff, there is no cost for you to attend and this equals about a
$225.00 value. Who can spend a week somewhere for that bargain of a price?
As usual, we will provide all food, housing, and transportation during
the week. We are sorry that other compensation isn't available and we can
not cover your transportation to and from Raleigh. Interviews will occur
in the month of December. Here is a link to the staff application.
