The Foundation for Blind Children Internship is a premier opportunity for students completing their education as Teachers of the Visually Impaired, Orientation & Mobility Specialists, and Vision Rehabilitation Therapists. While at FBC, interns will have the opportunity to work with participants across all of our programs ranging from birth to adults.
For those children enrolled in school districts without a teacher of the visually impaired, The Foundation’s Itinerant Program will provide, under contract, an itinerant vision teacher, who will focus on providing the specialized instruction and materials needed by the child in order to be successful in school. Today, FBC serves over 30 school districts throughout Arizona.
