2016 EYE Retreat

Envisioning Youth Empowerment Retreat
Established 2009




Our mission is to provide an opportunity for youth with visual impairments to experience a glimpse of post secondary outcomes (employment, college, etc) through development of mentoring relationships, real world applications, and identification of available resources.




Our vision is to empower and create a community of lifelong learners who will have the tools necessary to be successful in their education, careers, and lives.


"I retreat from no challenge!"

Contact Us!

Note:  The EYE Retreat has no employees.  All of our staff are volunteers who either are students themselves or are employed elsewhere.  If you call, email, or write us, you will be contacting our Director, Dr. Alan Chase, who is employed with a local school district in North Carolina.  If you have already been assigned a group leader, that person is always your first point of contact!  We look forward to seeing you at the next EYE Retreat!
