Summer in the City 2019

students visiting Herman Miller

Summer in the City is a unique summer program in which students ages 14-20 who are blind or visually impaired can meet and create friendships
with their peers from surrounding Michigan cities. Together, they explore various experiences throughout West Michigan.

The program combines volunteer/hobby exploration, cooking skills, leadership development, and city bus exposure to set up the foundations for future job/volunteer opportunities. Students will meet in Grand Rapids Monday-Thursday from 9 AM -3 PM during the last two weeks in June (June 17-20 and June 24-27). The program is provided to the students at no cost.
