Providing Insight Into Life Without Sight


Destination Independence; One Goal - Many Paths!

A proud affiliate of The American Council of the Blind and Tennessee Council of the Blind

The Mid-Tennessee Council of the Blind (MTCB) is one of five 501c3 not-for-profit chapters across the state whose members are concerned about the dignity and well-being of blind people and vision impaired Middle Tennesseans. Our members include persons who are blind, losing vision, or are parents of a child who is blind or visually impaired or fully sighted. We welcome anyone who wishes to work toward equal rights and full participation in society for everyone with a disability. The chapters' purpose is:

  • to expand the social, economic and cultural opportunities for blind persons in Tennessee;

  • to encourage and assist such persons in becoming more active, productive and responsible member of the community;

  • to enhance the educational and rehabilitative services available to blind persons in Tennessee;

  • to inform blind persons of available opportunities and services in education, employment, recreation, and other areas of common concern;

  • to inform the general public of the capabilities and accomplishments of blind persons and of the importance of providing specialized education to assist such persons to meet their full responsibilities as citizens.

Presidentís Volunteer Service Award

The President's Council on Service and Civic Participation (the Council) was established in 2003 to recognize the valuable contributions volunteers are making in our communities and encourage more people to serve. The Council created the Presidentís Volunteer Service Award program as a way to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service. We are a certifying organization so to earn a President's Volunteer Service Award, individuals, families and groups must keep a record of their activities and hours of volunteer service. Each individual, family, or group then submits its record of service to the Certifying Organization and awards are purchased and given out for volunteer work.
