Adult Volunteer Opportunities
Our volunteers have something to smile about.
At Southeastern Guide Dogs, we’re thankful for an army of volunteers who make it possible for us to better serve our students and graduates. With their help, we can continue offering a lifeline of freedom and independence that otherwise wouldn’t be possible for our students — at no charge.
Our Volunteers assist staff all over the organization, from working with the puppies and dogs or helping our administrative staff in a wide variety of positions at our main campus in Palmetto to assisting customers in our Sarasota and St. Petersburg Gift Shops. Our volunteers are as different as can be in personalities, backgrounds, and talents, yet they all have something in common: generous hearts. If you’d like to join our family, we have plenty to do!
We have perfected a tiered-approach to make sure that all of our volunteers become familiar with our facility and staff, receive world-class training, and have the opportunity to explore many different volunteer roles within the organization. Some of the opportunities available to volunteers in our program include:
- St. Petersburg Gift Shop
- Puppy Kennel & Training Kennel Helper
- Front Desk/Administrative Assistant
- Dog Walker
- Gardening/Landscaping Helper
- Public Appearances/Educational Speaker
- Weekend Getaway Host
- Transportation Provider
- and so much more!

Are you a group of adults looking for an opportunity to volunteer together? We can use your help!
If your group doesn’t mind a little dust and dirt and are willing to do some heavy lifting and organizing, we have opportunities for them to help both indoors and outside! For more information and project dates please contact Lauren Kobernick at email@example.com
