Calgary area
2 to 4 hours per week
closes in 54 days (Fri, 31 Mar)

The CNIB Vision Mate volunteer program provides one-on-one, community-based support to people who are blind or partially sighted. Vision Mate volunteers provide sighted assistance with four main activities: reading/organizing, running small errands, walks, and friendly visiting.

Our volunteers meet specific needs of people who are blind or partially sighted and are matched according to specific participant’s needs. Matches take place based on compatibility, location and availability.  Our volunteers are screened and trained in sighted guide techniques to properly assist those living with vision loss. Please note that Vision Mate volunteers do not drive, cook, provide personal care or clean.
