Who We Are:

The National Alliance of Blind Students (NABS) is the student affiliate of the American Council of the Blind, the nation's leading consumer and advocacy organization of people who are blind or visually impaired. A group of students founded NABS in 1974 to acquire a greater voice in the workings of this organization.

NABS works to advance the equal opportunity and excellence in education for all blind and visually impaired high school, college and university students in the United States. In so doing, we encourage leadership in our own communities of students with diabilty, network students to discuss issues of concern, and act to promote equal access where it is lacking.

Most of our work gets done through our committees. Visit our committee page to read about what each one is up to and how you can contribute your unique talents. We also have student affiliate organizations in several states that sponsor events and do advocacy work on a more local level. Check out our affiliates page to get connected.

What We Do on the National Level:

The Procedures of NABS:

NABS is governed by a Constitution that undergoes an annual review. You may read the current Constitution on-line.
