Envision Level Up Program

Programs designed to help students who are blind or visually impaired succeed in the classroom and beyond.

Connect engage act

Gaining independence as you transition into adulthood is important. And we couldn’t agree more. For students who are blind and visually impaired (B/VI), Envision offers an energetic and valuable program where students CONNECT with instructors and peers to learn to use Assistive Technology (AT), ENGAGE in fun and inspirational activities with friends from all across the US, and ACT to help bridge the digital divide as they advance their education and prepare for transition to higher education and/or employment.

Are you ready to Level Up?

The Level Up Program by Envision consists of various week-long training programs for students from across the nation, who are blind or visually impaired. The Elementary PREP program, held at Newman University, is a day program for 4th through 6th grade that introduces students to computer basics. The Middle School program, held at Butler Community College, works to develop soft skills and advocacy in addition to technology to promote academic success. The High School conference, located on the Wichita State University Campus, is designed to prepare students to successfully transition to college and career.
