Ready Set Forward | Guide Dogs for the Blind Skip to main content

Guide Dogs for the Blind is excited to unleash several new online learning opportunities for transition age youth who are blind or visually impaired, their parents and/or other family members, and professionals in the field of blindness and visual impairment.

We are committed to assisting youth who are blind or visually impaired, as well as the supportive network of people in their lives, be as well informed and prepared as possible to make the decision regarding cane or canine when the time is right.

Workshops include: 

  • The Canine Connection - Is Your Child Ready? Open to parents and family members of youth who are blind or visually impaired.
  • The Canine Connection - Is Your Student Ready? Open to professionals in the field of blindness and visual impairment.
  • The Ruff Life Academy - Harness Your Pawtential. A five-day workshop series open to teens who are blind or visually impaired age 14-17, and young adults who are blind or visually impaired age 18-24.
  • Wags & Wisdom - A Panel Discussion with Current Guide Dog Users. Open to all.
