At Perkins School for the Blind, we believe that every single employee has the power to make a difference in the life of a child or young adult who is blind or visually impaired. We value diversity in our staff, because our community is stronger when unique ideas and perspectives are shared. We build accessibility into every aspect of our work environment, giving talented employees of all backgrounds an opportunity to shine.
We value hard work, creativity and passion, and truly believe that the success of each employee leads to the success of the organization as a whole – that’s why we empower staff members to grow and pursue new opportunities across campus.
Our commitment to our mission of blindness education has never wavered since we opened our doors in 1829. Every day, we build on that tradition to create the best possible programs and services, driven by our dedicated employees.
While the world has changed since Perkins’ founding, our fundamental beliefs have remained constant. Our Core Values guide and inspire our work every day.
