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.
Are you interested in volunteering with children and adults with disabilities? Are you also interested in working with horses? Why not combine the two and volunteer with Friends for Therapeutic Equine Activities (FTEA)!
Volunteers have the opportunity to lead a horse during our adaptive riding lessons and/or walk beside horse and rider as a sidewalker. Volunteers also perform a variety of tasks throughout the barn including grooming, tacking, and assisting with the care of our FTEA horses. All volunteers work under the supervision of PATH Intl. Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors. Orientations are held the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month.
