If you’ve never been to a Guiding Eyes graduation, we urge you to join us at one – or at several, as do many of our supporters. Graduations mark the beginning of our students’ new lives with their Guiding Eyes dogs. These moving ceremonies also salute the hundreds of volunteers who raise our puppies and provide loving homes for our broods and studs – these generous and selfless individuals represent humanity at its best.

All graduations take place on Saturdays at the Headquarters and Training Center in Yorktown Heights, New York at 1:30 PM. A slideshow of the class and their work begins at 1:15 PM.

Consider joining us online to watch graduation live – or watch previous graduations – on the Guiding Eyes YouTube page.

For more information on sponsoring a graduation, please contact Kimberly Benson, Director of Special Gifts at 914-243-2211 or kbenson@guidingeyes.org
