    The event will be outdoors but under shelter. Orange County has lifted mask mandates but because so many of our clients are immunocompromised, we ask guests to wear a mask while at graduation. We will also be streaming the event live so you can attend virtually.

  • When?

    Graduation generally lasts about an hour. 

    Our next graduation is on Friday, July 22, 2022 at 5:30 pm.

Client and Dog Matching

Client and dog teams are matched up on the third day of our two-week Client Team Training. This is a very exciting moment for our clients as each begins a multi-year partnership with their assistance dog.

Matching is on Wednesday, July 13 at 9 am. We invite you to watch and celebrate with the teams through our online stream.

Client and Dog Team Graduation

Client and dog teams graduate together on the last day of our two-week Client Team Training. This is the culmination of two weeks of hard work for the clients. Please join us to send them off with the full support of the EENP community!

Graduation will begin on Friday, July 22nd at 5:30 pm and will last about an hour.

Please join us for the stream, which will show up here when the broadcast begins. You can also join from Facebook. Note that our internet service has been spotty at the outdoor venue so streaming may not be smooth.
