Albany -- Some blind South Georgians aren't letting their visual challenges hold them back. A new class in Albany will help prepare them for jobs.
The Albany Advocacy Resource Center is joining with the Factory for the Blind in Bainbridge for a new training program.
The course teaches basic work skills like showing up on time, dressing appropriately, and following directions. The class also gives students more confidence.
"What we want to do is change society's perception of people who do have difficulties because its not about disabilities. It's about ability," said Program Director, Robert Joyner.
The Albany A.R.C is now enrolling students for their next course. If you are interested in signing up you can call them at 229-888-6852.
