The Minnesota Association of Blind Students (MNABS) is a division of the National Federation of the Blind of Minnesota and is composed of blind students of all ages and academic levels who seek to improve opportunities and advocate for themselves and all blind students in the state of Minnesota. We meet to discuss issues of interest to blind students and share information and ideas. We conduct seminars where experienced blind students and successful, employed blind individuals share what they have learned in dealing with a variety of common situations such as Disability Services offices, hiring readers, misconceptions about blindness, and many other topics. We assist with the NFB of Minnesota scholarship and distribute information about the NFB's national scholarship program.
MNABS holds monthly conference calls to discuss topics and plan future events pertaining to blind students. Come learn what we're all about. The conference number is: (605) 475-4881,,960671#
