GDA Graduates Show Others The Way

From advocating to educating: three graduates who open doors and open minds

Students arrive at Guide Dogs of America and spend 28 days in class learning to work and live with a guide dog. All of our graduates leave GDA as ambassadors of what can be achieved with the assistance and companionship of a guide dog, returning home empowered to pursue a life filled with “the possible.” Many — simply by their actions and example — have inspired others.

It’s time to get a guide dog when…

For many of GDA’s graduates, there was an “aha moment” when they knew it was time to take the next step toward greater mobility and independence — making the switch from a white cane to a guide dog. Here, we share stories of three of our graduates about when they knew the time had come and the difference that having a guide dog has made for them in their lives.
