Volunteering at National Braille Press was a mind-opening experience. I had a preconceived idea that braille was an obsolete system. I came away in awe of the possibilities it offers-from kids reading Harry Potter as quickly as anyone, to accessing the Internet in real time. Braille is here to stay. -Phillip, a volunteer from Mellon New England (currently The Bank of New York Mellon)
Help assemble print/braille books for blind children! National Braille Press offers monthly volunteer projects for groups of 12-25 people (size of group depends on type of project) in our Boston-based braille publishing facility located near Symphony Hall.
Volunteer projects are held during the weekday from 1-4:30pm, on Saturdays between 10am - 2pm, and in the evenings between 5:30-9:00pm. - You choose what time works best for your group!

National Braille Press reserves spots for individuals at our monthly group projects. Individual volunteers who sign up for our volunteer e-list will be notified monthly regarding project dates. Children 12 years and older are welcome if accompanied by an adult.
