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.
We Can Ride is always looking for great volunteers like you to help us. You can help in therapeutic riding lessons and hippotherapy as sidewalkers, leaders, and barn aides. If you are at least 18, you could also feed the horses, Plus we need volunteers to maintain the barn, help at special events, fundraisers, committees and office tasks.
Our lessons are 5-8 weeks long and go from January through October every year. We have lessons every day of the week, with evening, daytime, and weekend times available.
You do not need to have any experience working with people with disabilities and special needs or horses. We will give you all the training you need to do your role confidently.
Looking to learn more about horses? We offer trainings throughout the year to all of our volunteers to give back to you. It is a great way to learn more.
We look forward to working with you - and so do our riders and horses!
