We were happy to host Blind & Socially Savvy this weekend! Students had the opportunity to learn about important social skills that will help them become more confident with themselves in order to network with others in the community. Students learned how to give a proper handshake, table etiquette, and much more. Students enjoyed meeting and networking with people in our community.
Some remarks from our students:
I came in thinking I knew everything; but, there’s definitely a lot that I need to learn. Thanks to the savvy coaches for giving me realistic goals.
I came not knowing anyone; now, I’m leaving with friends. I feel a sense of community while being here and enjoyed learning how to give a proper handshake.
Some remarks from our volunteers in the community:
The energy and personality in the room is remarkable. The students seem as if they have gained so much already.
All of the students gave great handshakes and had excellent table manners.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this weekend a success! We are looking forward to seeing you guys again in May!
