Mentorship Monday Chats



Every Monday, TBA Members chat with Mentors that are thriving with blindness and low-vision. Each session starts with some coaching/guiding through principles of success, and then we share successes and challenges. Some folks ask questions, some just listen in. All leave the sessions empowered and connected to others like themselves. Click the video below to get a sneak peak of the mentorship calls!
