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.
Do you like working with horses and people with special needs? We have the perfect opportunity for you! CHAPS volunteers assist in the daily care of our program horses. Volunteers work side-by-side with our students during their lessons either by handling the horse or side walking with the student/rider. Horse handlers assist in controlling the horse until the student becomes confident and capable of doing so. Side walkers help support the rider on the horse and offer guidance and assistance during their lesson.
