ORGANIZATION: Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center

Volunteers needed for Vinceremos Work Readiness classes. We are looking for reliable individuals, age 18 and older to help support the instructors with Work Readiness classes. Perfect training for college students who are studying to work with special needs individuals. Great for adults who can help in resume writing, business communication. Did you know that there are college grants for individuals who have many volunteer hours? Experience with individuals with physical and mental disabilities a plus.. No horse experience is necessary, we train as required.

Vinceremos is a therapeutic horsemanship center offering equine-assisted services to children and adults with cognitive, physical, psychological and developmental disabilities.

The Vinceremos Work Readiness classes offer volunteer opportunities every Monday - Friday from 8:30 am - 1:00 pm for 12 weeks from June 5-August 4th (July 4th is an off week). Each class runs for 5 consecutive days so if you have the time and can commit to the whole week we can pair you with a specific student.

This opportunity requires assisting students both in the classroom and in the stable to complete all types of fun activities from resume writing, communications, proper grooming, guiding students to complete task lists to become self directed. Depending on development level, assignments may change.

Mission Statement

Vinceremos is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving individuals with physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities through equine assisted activities.

Description

Vinceremos means "to overcome" or "to conquer" in Latin. The horses' gentle nature and rhythmic movement joined with our staff's extensive expertise has helped hundreds of clients conquer challenges associated with their disabilities. VTRC coordinates its services through physician/therapist referrals, group homes, school programs and individual enrollment. Vinceremos staff includes PATH International certified instructors, and of course our 17 specially-trained equine partners, selected for their patience, dependability, and rhythmic gaits. This therapeutic medium propels clients to reach goals such as:

  • Strengthening postural control and core balance
  • Improving motor function
  • Increasing ability to concentrate
  • Gaining a greater sense of self-esteem and accomplishment
  • Enhancing communication and social skills

Mastering these goals in VTRC's fun, natural, and nurturing environment, riders gain greater independence and achieve a higher quality of life. The bond that is formed between the clients and our horses often motivates them to continue their equine interest, either as a long-term therapy or as a life long recreational outlet.
