Meet the CNIB National Youth Council

The CNIB National Youth Council provides council members with the opportunity to influence change and increase awareness of issues facing young Canadians living with sight loss. The council also ensures CNIB initiatives, programs, and policies reflect and respond to the needs of young people with sight loss. Meet the young leaders who are driven to change what it is to be blind today!
