The Early Youth Eyecare program of the Phillips Eye Institute Foundation provides comprehensive vision care for Minneapolis Public School students grades K-6 who are uninsured or underinsured.

Volunteer Opticians dispense children's glasses prescribed on the Kirby Puckett Eye Mobile in the comfort of the child’s school health office. This role is a good match for currently employed or retired Opticians who enjoy working with children and making a profound impact on the lives of others. Volunteer Opticians help remove vision issues as a major roadblock to learning, allowing every child the opportunity to reach their fullest potential.

Major Responsibilities

  • Pick up the glasses at Phillips Eye Institute for the students.

  • Dispense glasses at the Minneapolis and St Paul Public schools to students.

  • Communicate one-on-one with children in a friendly, calm manner to explain use and care of glasses.
