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.
Volunteers are always needed to make our program possible!
Sidewalkers (must be 14 years or older) - work directly with the clients during their lessons while providing safety and stability and assist with activities.
Horse Handlers (must be 14 years or older) - must pass the horse handler tryouts and have experience working with horses. Primarily responsible for the tacking up, warming up and working with the horses for each therapeutic riding lesson.
The RTC depends on volunteers for all aspects of the program including: events, maintenance, landscaping, office help, web and IT help and activity helpers during the lessons.
