It’s time for Summer Teen at the South Carolina Commission for the Blind!

From internship experiences and opportunities for personal growth, to developing friendships and exploring career options, SCCB’s Summer Teen Program provides students ages 13-21 who are blind or have low vision with the knowledge, skills, and resources to help them achieve their academic and career goals.
