Thanks to our volunteers, we're harnessing the power of partnership.

Some partnerships are just meant to be. Not only is this true for GDB clients and their guide dogs or K9 Buddies, it's true throughout our entire organization. The partnerships with thousands of passionate volunteers across the country who donate their time, talents, and hearts are what make Guide Dogs for the Blind a reality.

Volunteers welcome dogs into their homes; they act as program ambassadors; they provide administrative support to many departments, and they support the mission in myriad ways. If you want to give your time, there's no shortage of ways to help. Explore the many options, and decide what interests you most, and then get in touch.

There are many ways to make a lasting impact.
