Volunteer Opportunities

Together, we can help more people with vision loss to live a full life and reach their potential!

Our volunteers play a vital role in Second Sense’s ability to provide service to people with vision loss. From helping us spread the word about our services and manning the front desk, to designing our annual reports and updating our computers, there is always some place your talents and skills can be put to good use.
