The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
If you have both a passion for animals and helping children with autism, then we have such a unique opportunity for you to be a part of. Come join our team of volunteers working every day to make a difference in both our horses and childrens lives as either a sidewalker or a horse handler during one of our lessons. There are other opportunites as well, so dont hesistate to ask how we can use your specific interests.
Volunteers will be expected to come to meetings and workshops, where our staff will teach basic horse handling techniques in order for volunteers to feel comfortable enough working around the animals. Our main goal outside of providing an awesome experience to the children and adults in the lessons, is to keep everyone involved including horses safe.
We currently have lessons going on 5 times a week, mornings and evenings.
