The deadline to apply as an adult volunteer for the 2017 National 
Federation of the Blind Youth Slam is fast approaching! The NFB Youth 
Slam program is a weeklong learning opportunity for high school 
students in a wide-variety of science, technology, engineering, and 
math (STEM) disciplines. In order to make this program a success we 
need your help! Please help us engage, inspire, and encourage the 
next generation of blind scientists, engineers, programmers, and 
mathematicians to consider STEM careers. While some falsely believe 
these careers are not for blind students, the NFB is here to 
transform dreams into reality.

Volunteers are needed to help our students learn new skills, build 
confidence, and increase their science literacy. They can serve in a 
variety of capacities including: helping to prepare materials, 
teaching a class, providing support to students both in and outside 
of class, helping execute program logistics (i.e., set up and tear 
down, material distribution), providing navigational support for 
students (i.e., talking signs), etc. Volunteers will be needed 
Friday, July 21 - Saturday, July 29, 2017.

The deadline to apply is Friday, February 17. Visit 
to apply now! For more information about NFB Youth Slam volunteer 
opportunities, please visit 
If you have additional questions, contact us at (410) 659-9314, 
extension 2418, or email <mailto:STEM at nfb.org>STEM at nfb.org.

Join us as we continue to raise expectations and make history at what 
promises to be the best NFB Youth Slam yet!
