Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The San Dimas Western Days Rodeo is a non profit organization dedicated to preserving the great sport of rodeo. We pride ourselves on our continuous support and betterment of our local communities through our educational scholarship program.
The San Dimas Rodeo is held on the first week end in October every year. It is 100% volunteer run. The Board of Directors are all volunteers and work on the rodeo all year long in preparation. On Rodeo week end, we rely on our wonderful community volunteers, without them, the Rodeo can not take place. The net proceeds from the rodeo go right back into our local communities toward continuing education (scholarships), veteran programs, cancer programs and victims of domestic violence programs. On Sunday of rodeo week end, we also put on a Challenged Buckaroo Rodeo prior to the rodeo. It is a free event for any challenged child between ages of 3 to 12 and up to 80 pounds. The volunteer opportunites vary. We need minimum age of 15 for our youth volunteers and we also need adult volunteers. They check in at 9:30 am and work until 5:00 pm. Any one that needs community service will be provided with proof of service. Every volunteer will be provided with lunch and water throughout the day at no charge to them. They also qualify to recieve one general admission ticket to the rodeo for each performance day they work. If they prefer to work both days of performance, they can give their tickets to someone they know. Volunteers are checked on a regular basis throughout the day and are provided with a contact number for anything they need while they are there. They are required to attend a one hour orientation meeting prior to the rodeo
