About Us & Leadership

The Envisioning Youth Empowerment Retreat is a nonprofit tax exempt organization.  It is organized, managed, and evaluated by individuals with visual impairments themselves.  A Board of Directors oversees the policies, budget, and staffing of the organization.  All of these individuals volunteer their time and service each year to make sure participants have a great experience.  None of our staff are full time.  The EYE Retreat was founded in 2009 and operated from 2009 to 2015 under the fiscal agent of The Governor Morehead School Alumni Association, a nonprofit tax exempt organization, before seeking and obtaining its own Articles of Incorporation and nonprofit approval in 2015.
