July 27, 2020 – August 7, 2020
The NFB BELL Academy provides children with Braille and nonvisual skills instruction through fun, hands-on learning activities.
The NFB BELL Academy—which stands for National Federation of the Blind Braille Enrichment for Literacy and Learning®—is a nationwide (the United States and Puerto Rico) summer program that prepares blind and low-vision children to grow into confident and independent blind people who live the lives they want.
We want to make sure that students, parents, and volunteers have the best NFB BELL Academy experience possible. We are condensing our academies into three nationally taught and coordinated sessions with support from NFB affiliates. This summer, two-week-long sessions of NFB BELL Academy will take place at 11:00 a.m. ET and at 6:00 p.m. ET. Each session will last for forty-five minutes during the following dates:
- June 1, 2020, through June 12, 2020—This session has reached its capacity and is now full.
- June 22, 2020, through July 3, 2020—This session has reached its capacity and is now full.
- July 27, 2020, through August 7, 2020
Please note the 11:00 a.m. session taking place on June 22, 2020, through July 3, 2020, will be bilingual. This session will be conducted in English and in Spanish.
