Full course description

This course describes the method and outcomes of an employment mentoring research project. College students with legal blindness who were within six months of graduation worked with field-specific legally blind mentors on employment preparation issues for one year. Their outcomes were compared to a control group of students who did not work with mentors. This course details participant experiences and employment-related outcomes and includes recommendations for future mentoring programs. 

This course is available for CRC, ACVREP, and NBPCB credit.
