Upcoming Trainings and Guardian Opportunities

All Guardians must receive formal training before serving an Honor Flight, be between the ages of 18 and 65, and be able to lift 100 pounds with assistance. Guardians will walk approximately 3 miles throughout the day, and will likely be required to push a wheelchair carrying a veteran. 

For the 2021 season: The DCA Ground Crew will provide a list of already trained guardians, who indicate that they still want to serve as guardians, to the hubs so the hubs can contact volunteers directly to serve as a guardian.

Check back frequently on this page for the next guardian or tour guide training session.

Next training

July 6th, Wednesday
