Kelly Smith has been volunteering with the Division for the Visually Impaired's Instructional Materials and Resource Center for seven years. She performs a wide variety of tasks that benefit the visually impaired K12 students served by the agency.
Kelly started with DVI learning the policies and procedures for preparing, creating, and converting educational and instructional materials into accessible formats produced by the Instructional Materials and Resource Center and its partner, the Men With a Message program. These materials are then used by the visually impaired K12 students of Delaware served by DVI.
Kelly also assists with daily operations in the production and processing of these books and materials. She trains other volunteers on the tasks and steps needed to create and prepare large print; large type and braille books.
In 2015 alone, Kelly served over 140 hours.
