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.
Volunteers are a vital part of Northland Therapeutic Riding Center's therapeutic riding program, donating more than 5,000 hours each year. They say there is something magical about the barn and the camaraderie of the volunteers, staff, and riders. "It feels special", volunteers say, "to be part of a program that makes such a difference in so many lives."
NTRC needs you. Experience with horses is not necessary for all positions since many volunteer positions extend beyond the barn. You just have to want to help. Volunteers can assist as horse leaders or sidewalkers in the therapeutic riding classes, tend to the needs of our special horses, or share their accounting, writing, photography, computer, or organizational skills with our center. Whatever your talent or interest, there is a perfect place for you at NTRC. Volunteer schedules are flexible.
