Volunteers give their time, energy and support to those in need. The compensation they receive is not monetary but instead are life-long memories filled with the thrills of accomplishment and the outpouring of love from the clients they serve. As part of the Leap O' Faith team, they serve with heart and receive to their heart. If you are looking for a life changing experience...volunteer!
No horse experience is necessary (but very welcome!). You will be mentored by experienced volunteers and get a real taste of what Laep O' Faith TRC is all about. We will teach you to be a volunteer in adherence with PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) standards. We have monthly Volunteer training classes on the third Saturday of each month. It's a great way to learn the ropes of what it takes to be a Leap O' Faith volunteer.
To show our appreciation for attending the training session, coffee and donuts will be provided in the morning. Please bring a sack lunch, though. Water and tea will be available at all times.
Also, anytime you plan on being around the horses and in the arena, it's important to dress appropriately. Please wear long pants and closed toed shoes (no sandals or flip flops.)
We are currently in need of volunteers in the following areas:
Trained Volunteers work directly with the Instructors or Therapists as side-walkers and horse-handlers, providing assistance before and during lessons. As this work is critical during our clients scheduled therapy session, you must be able to commit to the same day and time each week. This is a fantastic opportunity to work outside with our special clients and the horses. You will also have the opportunity to care for the horses outside of lessons,
Office volunteers do not work directly with the clients but are equally important to the success of the program. Their tasks include helping with mailings, data entry, filing, and working on the telephone. For the sake of continuity we request those wanting to volunteer in the office commit to a minimum of 3 hours a week for a full session.
The work of the Fundraising Volunteers is to help plan and work at the special events that happen throughout the year. These events help to introduce the Leap O' Faith TRC to the community. These volunteers have the opportunity to reach out to many individuals with thank you calls, on-site tours and by participating on various committees.
