Loveway

URGENT NEED - 60+ volunteers needed starting January 3rd!

Loveway is in desperate need of 60+ volunteers for the winter session starting January 3rd.

You would be helping our instructors as we partner with our horses to provide participants an educational and beneficial experience; learning about horsemanship and relatable responsibilities along with riding skills.

Class volunteers are usually paired with the same participant and horse throughout the session to offer the chance to form bonds amongst one another, including the horse, which has proven to be beneficial for all!

If helping in classes, we ask our class volunteers to help in the class(es) they sign up for every week for the entire session, which runs for eight weeks. We have daytime, evening and Saturday classes during each session so volunteers can choose the available class(es) that would work best with their schedule.

If you only plan on missing a week or two during the session, we encourage you to continue to apply as a Therapeutic Riding volunteer. We’ll mark your absence on our calendar and make other arrangements for that week.

If you still aren’t sure if you can commit to a full session, we still have a place for you at LoveWay! We are always looking for substitute volunteers to fill in when needed during classes – which happens often. You can also check out the other volunteer opportunities, like grounds and maintenance or special events, for other ways to help.
