Welcome

Club VIBES (Visually Impaired/Blind Enhanced Services) is a free mentoring service for visually impaired or blind youth and their parents/guardians residing in or around the Knoxville, Tennessee area. Established in November 2008, Club VIBES is a chartered not-for-profit organization registered with the state of Tennessee and Knox County.

Club VIBES is made up of a group of volunteers who care about visually impaired youth as they make the transition into an independent adult life. Through mentoring, these volunteers teach independent living skills and provide Club members with educational activities which model, develop and reinforce social and leadership skills. Social outings and special events also are used as learning opportunities.
