Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Prevent Blindness Wisconsin!
Prevent Blindness Wisconsin has more than 5,000 volunteers and partners statewide who have made such a difference for children’s healthy vision in Wisconsin. Thanks to them, thousands of Wisconsin’s children have healthier vision and clearer days ahead!
Our screenings and educational services are possible because of the generous efforts of our volunteers. Here are some of the rewarding ways you can help us achieve our mission to prevent blindness and preserve sight in your community:
Children's Vision Screener: Provide vision screenings for children ages 3-5 at childcare centers and preschools in your local community. Each new volunteer will receive free training and certification. No medical or healthcare experience is necessary to volunteers as a vision screener.
Children's Vision Screening Coordinator: Schedule vision screenings, recruit volunteers, and manage post-screening paperwork. This is a great opportunity for screeners looking to become even more involved or for someone who is looking to take on a leadership role and larger time commitment.
Your Amazing Eyes Volunteer: Your Amazing Eyes is an educational story time program that takes place on weekday mornings at a variety of Milwaukee Public Libraries and surrounding suburban libraries. Volunteers will read books related to vision and eyesight as well as engage children in vision-related games and activities. Volunteers also offer a free vision screening after the program for children who attend.
