The Peace Center for the Blind

The Peace Center is unique in its holistic approach to education: members are educated not only in academic subjects and vocational skills, but are also trained in self-care, hygiene, health practices, home-economics, mobility and other practical life skills. This is accomplished through mentoring relationships with instructors who are also visually impaired, and students are given hands-on experience in all of these areas while living and working together with several faculty and staff in a shared boarding house facility. The overall goal of all of these programs is to teach students independence, self-confidence, the ability to become productive members of their communities.
