Do you enjoy being around horses? Do you want to learn about horses and what it takes to keep a ranch running? If so, this may be the perfect volunteer opportunity for you.
The Armed Services YMCA San Diego provides programs for active duty military families at our Horse of the Sun Ranch, located about 45 miles east of San Diego in Pine Valley.
We are seeking volunteers who will assist paid ASYMCA staff members with general ranch chores which may include cleaning stalls, removing manure, feeding/watering horses, and other minor maintenance tasks.
We prefer that those interested volunteer on a recurring basis to minimize training needs.
We have volunteer openings 9 a.m.-Noon on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. You will self-schedule when you volunteer.
The Armed Services YMCA San Diego enhances the lives of service members and their families in mind, body, and spirit through programs and services that are relevant to the unique challenges of military life.
Volunteers are a vital part of our outreach and support efforts. We truly value the contributions volunteers make to in service to our active duty junior enlisted service members each and every day. Every month, members of our community volunteer network share hundreds of hours in a wide variety of different ways! Your hard work really does make a positive impact on the lives of our active duty junior enlisted service members. Groups and individual volunteers participate in all of our outreach and support efforts here at the Armed Services YMCA San Diego.
We provide volunteer opportunities at our Murphy Canyon location (Family and Youth Enrichment programs; special and community events), at Naval Medical Center San Diego (Wounded, Injured and Ill patient and family support), and at our Horse of the Sun Ranch in Pine Valley (Family and Youth Enrichment programs; resiliency programs).
We are a certifying organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award. Learn more at: https://www.presidentialserviceawards.gov/
