Tactile Graphics Volunteer

At Home or On-Site

Last updated October 21, 2015

Description:

Enjoy the challenge of transforming print diagrams, maps, and other graphic images into tactile-ready graphics for children and adults with print disabilities. With your help, children and adults can have access to a world of graphical information.

Adapt a variety of print graphics, such as mathematical diagrams, floor charts, maps, bar graphs and other educational materials, using graphics software on a computer. Many assignments may have tight deadlines so that students can receive their school assignments at the same time as their sighted peers. It's a perfect opportunity for retirees or persons with time to volunteer from home.

Requirements:

Time Commitment:

This is an ongoing and long-term commitment. We ask a minimum of 5 hours per week, ongoing, with more time required during training.

Training:

Basic Training will be provided by an ABLE staff member. Additional training opportunities and possible certification will also be offered. An 8-10 hour per week commitment for study and completion of homework assignments is necessary. A commitment to ABLE after training is an expectation.


Location:

At Home, or at our office in the Central Library Building in downtown Milwaukee.
