All volunteers are required to have recieved the Covid-19 vaccine and wear a mask while volunteering.

Kids Vision for Life St. Louis provides free vision services to children, including vision screenings, eye exams, and prescription eye-wear for elementary, middle, and high school students around the St. Louis area. Our vision is to give students with visual impairments in Title 1 schools free glasses in order to provide the best education possible.

We need volunteers to go with us to different schools in the area and conduct vision screenings. We train all volunteers on site, so no previous experience is needed. We do screenings every day at a different school and typically have 2 volunteers a day. Volunteers will get the chance to make a different in hundreds of children’s lives in just one screening day!

Once the screening is carried out, our optometrist provide eye exams to the kids who fail and give the students glasses at no cost to the families. We then make the glasses on our mobile vision clinic so the students can take them home the day of the exam!
