The Miami Lighthouse Board, a diverse and dynamic group of volunteers, provides leadership
and support to ensure the vitality of the organization.
Miami Lighthouse's CEO and Management Team is dedicated to offering the most effective,
state-of-the-art techniques and care to persons who are blind or visually impaired,
as well as its new initiative in eye wellness.
The Young Professionals of the Lighthouse (YPOL) was launched in 2003 to establish volunteerism
and activism among professionals between 25-40 years of age. Their social gatherings, held throughout
the year, promote networking and fundraising for Miami Lighthouse programs and special projects.
