While our primary guide dog programs serve adults, Guide Dogs for the Blind also seeks out ways to engage youth who are blind or visually impaired wherever possible. Our two programs, K9 Buddies and Camp GDB, were developed to provide kids and their families an opportunity to begin to explore the guide dog lifestyle at a young age. 

K9 Buddies: We're matching children and young adults who are visually impaired with specially selected dogs to be their pets.

Camp GDB: A summer camp for youth who are blind and visually impaired to learn more about the guide dog lifestyle.
