Thank you for your interest in the 2024 Seeing Eye Seminar for Youth. We are excited to share this year’s program, which is scheduled for August 19th - August 22nd and will be held on The Seeing Eye’s beautiful campus located in historic Morristown, NJ. There is no cost to attend the seminar; travel, lodging, and food are covered. Our goal is to provide young people from across the US and Canada with an immersive experience with a Seeing Eye dog to help them explore guide dog mobility and the guide dog lifestyle.
Students should:
  • Be between the ages of 15 & 18.
  • Have a significant visual impairment.
  • Be cane travelers.
  • Have the emotional readiness and maturity required to attend a residential program.
  • Be capable of walking one to two miles a day, and able to receive and implement instruction.
  • Be self-sufficient with daily living skills.
  • Have an interest in learning more about guide dog mobility.
  • Be able to cross streets independently and head toward being independent travelers. Students will be traveling the streets of Morristown under instructor supervision with both canes and dogs, but good travel skills are expected.
