  • Community Service Opportunity: Blind Sports Organization of Philadelphia
    • Our organization has done a great job of providing people with visual impairment the opportunity to participate in athletic settings. As a non-profit organization, we are constantly looking for volunteers to assist in our various events held around the Philadelphia area.  Being familiar towards Central’s mission to have students engage in community service, I think this would be a great opportunity to have students assist in events while being able to enjoy the pleasures of sports and social interaction. We have a volunteer sign-up page, which is copied below.
