We love our Volunteers and cannot do what we do without YOU. We had over 14,000 hours of volunteer services in 2019! You do not need to have horse experience. WE will teach you.
Volunteers are people who give their time and services to benefit our programs. Some bring skills in horsemanship, while others bring skills in leadership and other experiences. Our volunteers make a difference in the lives of others. They are the heart of our programs and their dedication to our mission is the reason why we thrive.
YR 2021, we are moving our application, orientation and scheduling online. This is a big move for our organization and a great opportunity for volunteers to enroll and schedule their volunteer experience in real time. If you need to download an application, you can download the application by clicking here.
Volunteers Must: Be willing to attend appropriate volunteer training. Be committed to volunteering at your scheduled time at least once a week per 10 week session. (we need a commitment)
We do not have an age requirement but a level of maturity is expected and all youngsters MUST be accompanied by an adult/parent/guardian who will be responsible for them while volunteering.
It is up to the staff of Healing Strides to determine if any volunteer is a good fit for the responsibilities that are asked of them.
