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 love horses and have an outgoing personality, YOU could be one of our volunteer Tour Guides, and we’d love to have you. Every horse at Old Friends has a story to tell - their accomplishments on the race track, the accomplishments of their sons and daughters, and even the occasional role in a major movie or their unique relationships with national celebrities. We provide all the facts and on-the-job training, and you’ll fall in love with our horses as you learn their personal stories. Then you’ll have an opportunity to introduce them to our visitors and tell their stories during scheduled tours of the farm.
Tour Guides conduct farm tours and interact with visitors to relate personal history of the horses on the tour, and educate the public on the mission of Old Friends.
Tour guides are required to stand for extended periods of time and must walk on uneven terrain. Work is performed outdoors in all types of weather conditions, including extreme heat, rain, and snow. Tours are suspended during any inclement weather that creates a physical hazard to the tour guide or visitors.
Volunteers must be comfortable with public speaking in front of groups ranging in size from 2 - 40 individuals, and must be able to memorize statistics and personal histories of the horses at Old Friends.
