The Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) changes the lives of blind and visually impaired youth and adults with sports throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. Our athletes develop belief in themselves. Breaking down barriers and isolation, they become an active part of their schools and communities. Our mission is to provide life-changing opportunities through sports and physical activity to individuals who are blind and visually impaired. We change lives by introducing individuals with visual impairments to sports. Once they experience sports and physical activities, our participants have more self-confidence and open up to the possibility that they really can pursue their dreams in both sports and life. Northwest Association for Blind Athletes relies on volunteers to support our life-changing programs for individuals of all ages and abilities with visual impairments. Each year, we are supported by over 150 community members who volunteer at program events, help with office tasks, sit on boards and committees and more to help us make a difference. If you are 18 and over, and looking for a amazing opportunity to volunteer with individuals who are blind and visually impaired. Please consider our organization.
