Sharing the Gift of Sight

August 27th, 2019

Location: 100 Stein Plaza - Rm 3-214 Los Angeles Ca 90095
Duration: Multiple Days
First Day : Aug 27, 2019
Last Day: Dec 12, 2019



We are recruiting volunteers to assist The Center for Community Outreach and Policy Preschool Vision Screening (PSVS) program. Volunteers will perform the vision screenings at various Head Start, State and private preschools to identify possible refractive errors or eye muscle disorder. The preschools we visit are located in the Westside, Santa Monica and parts of the San Fernando Valley. Early detection of these treatable conditions can avoid countless school-age vision problems. Screenings last approximately two – four hours on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday mornings. No experience required. A brief training will be provided at the school site or new volunteers will be partnered with a trained volunteer. Desired candidates must enjoy working with children ages 3 to 4 years of age. Minimum time requirement commitment are four vision screenings per season. The season is from the last week of August to December’s holidays. Volunteers provide their own transportation or carpooling is available upon request from UCLA Stein Eye Institute.

 

Thank you for your interest in vision health!

Time Details

We provided ample of time for our volunteers to schedule the vision screenings within their busy schedule. One month out an email announcement will be sent for signing-up for a date(s), and thereafter, a friendly reminder will be sent a week prior to the event. Majority of the vision screenings are on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday mornings. We ask for a time commitment of four vision screenings between the months of August - December.
