Leading the Way, developed in partnership with world-renowned blind mountaineer and Board member Erik Weihenmayer, unites students of mixed visual abilities on incredible adventures around the world. Participants gain unparalleled skills as leaders who focus on building a shared vision, encouraging independence and teamwork, learning from mistakes, questioning assumptions, promoting trust and embracing adversity. All participants learn the adaptive skills necessary to fulfill their roles as members of a diverse team striving to accomplish a common goal.
The 2015 Leading the Way program for students with visual impairments and their sighted peers will take place in Grand Canyon National Park on July 13-24, 2015.
