ORGANIZATION: Friends of Leaps & Bounds Pediatric Therapy

At Leaps & Bounds, we rely HEAVILY on our awesome volunteers to help keep our program going for the kids!

Our volunteers help with grooming and handling horses, setting up and cleaning up for sessions, side walking during sessions, helping kids and families around the ranch, helping with events, helping out in our office, and for activities for our nonprofit organization.

We have volunteers of all different backgrounds and with different interests. Whether you are interested in horse handling, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, child education, special education, ranch management, or just having some fun making a difference in a child’s life, we need your help! The minimum age requirement is 16 years old. Adult volunteers will be background checked upon registration.

Our volunteers are eligible for Leaps & Bounds merchandise and recognition/service awards at appreciation events throughout the year! We also offer an annual volunteer scholarship to outstanding volunteers.

We are happy to sign off on community service hours for school requirements, college entrance, physical/occupational therapy school applications, etc. We also provide letters of reference for job/school applications.

For information on how to get started volunteering, please email us Volunteer Coordinator at CBragalone@leapspediatric.org

About Friends of Leaps & Bounds Pediatric Therapy

Location:

4211 B Valley View Ave., Norco, CA 92860, US

Mission Statement

To assist economically disadvantaged people with disabilities through providing physical therapy, occupational therapy, and hippotherapy treatments and services at no cost or low cost.

Description

Friends of Leaps & Bounds Pediatric Therapy Inc, is a 501(c) (3) tax-exempt non-profit corporation. It was founded by four members of the community who noticed a severe lack of access to specialty medically-necessary therapy services for children with disabilities in the Inland Empire. Many children do not have medical insurance or the financial resources to pay for necessary therapy services to help them reach goals of independent physical functioning such as walking, dressing themselves, feeding themselves, or accessing school and the community.

We provide hippotherapy (a highly research based treatment strategy used by physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapists to achieve rapid improvements in functional skills) and adaptive riding, using the magic of the horse, to help children with disabilities reach their goals.

Please consider volunteering with Friends of Leaps & Bounds Pediatric Therapy! We love to have volunteers out to help and we rely heavily on our awesome volunteers. Regardless of experience, we can use your help out on our ranch to help these special kids grow!

Please contact us to help our special kids grow by Leaps & Bounds!
