Education Employment Entrepreneurialism

To reverse the national trend of 70% of working aged adults with visual impairments being unemployed or under-employed, KCBAS provides support and funding to the Kansas State School for the Blind’s (KSSB) statewide vocational programs in the form of wages for community work experiences, job shadow opportunities, and tuition for post-secondary training through a local community college and its technical education center. KCBAS also administers the Gwendolyne Hawley Trust Scholarship Fund, and through a partnership with Youth Entrepreneurs of Kansas, KCBAS provides funds for a summer Entrepreneurial BIZ camp offered at KSSB.
