Become a Volunteer
Millions of people in the world have vision problems that can easily be corrected with eyeglasses. Yet, many of the poorest segments of the world's population in Asia, Latin America, and Africa cannot afford the cost of a simple pair of eyeglasses.
You can help them by volunteering for EYEsee. Your in-kind donations of time and talents can help thousands of people to experience corrected vision with recycled eyeglasses, helping them regain productivity and employability and enjoy a quality of life.
We have many volunteer opportunities to help with our continuing work in alleviating the world's poverty or support this year's two campaigns (used eyeglasses collections and fundraising). Becoming an EYEsee volunteer can be both a transforming and memorable experience for you, while expanding your communication, leadership, and problem-solving skills.
