ORGANIZATION: Leader Dogs for the Blind

  • 5 people are interested

Help make a transformational difference in a person's life! Volunteer with Leader Dogs for the Blind.

Client drivers use Leader Dog (LD) vehicles to provide safe transportation for LD clients to and from the campus. Volunteers also transport board members, seminar attendees, and other guests with or without guide dogs to airports, transportation centers (bus, train) and local businesses. In addition to providing transportation, volunteers also escort clients through airport security and to their gate, problem-solve if a flight is delayed or cancelled and make clients feel at ease under stressful travel situations.

This is a multi-faceted role requiring complex training and shadowing of veteran drivers. Drives are scheduled on Saturdays and Sundays, so weekend availability is required for this position.

See Leader Dogs for the Blind website for a full description.

About Leader Dogs for the Blind


1039 S. Rochester Rd., Rochester, MI 48307, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is empowering people who are blind or visually impaired with lifelong skills for safe and independent daily travel.


Founded by three Detroit area Lions Clubs members in 1939, Leader Dogs for the Blind provides dog guides to people who are blind and visually impaired to enhance their mobility, independence and quality of life. Each year, over 200 clients attend our residential training program to be paired with a dog guide. This is a life-changing event that opens the doors to independence, safety and self-worth for many of our students.

In addition to our dog guide program, we offer programs that enhance a person's independence and quality of life in other ways, including orientation and mobility training, GPS training, and seminars for Orientation and Mobility professionals. Currently, Leader Dog is the only facility in the Western Hemisphere to teach Deaf-blind students to work with a dog guide.

Thanks to generous donations from our supporters, our dog guide services are provided free of charge, including room and board and travel to and from our campus in Rochester Hills, Michigan, for clients.

Leader Dog is recognized as a "Best In America" Charity by the Independent Charities of America (ICA).
