Young Leaders

Fighting Blindness Canada’s Young Leaders Program is a career-oriented initiative aimed at creating a brighter, more inclusive future for youth living with vision loss. The program provides young people in Canada, aged 15-35 who are blind or partially sighted, with the opportunity to gain access to resources, guidance and support they need on the path to pursuing rewarding careers and finding fulfilling employment.

Every year the program brings together participants for in-person events that facilitate interactions that lead to real insights and opportunities. If you have any questions about the Young Leaders program you can reach us at
