Volunteer opportunity description
Join GallopNYC's volunteer team. Gain personal satisfaction of helping children and adults with developmental, emotional, social and physical challenges. Volunteers lead horses and escort our riders. No prior experience with horses or in therapeutic riding is necessary. You will be provided with the information required before we begin the lessons. You will always be in the company of experienced volunteers and instructors who are happy to answer any questions you come up. Lessons are taught by a riding instructor certified by Path International and a supported by licensed physical Therapists, as well as a dedicated and experienced group of volunteers. Our volunteers LOVE what they do and it really shows. Most of our volunteers feel that they get just as much from being a part of our program as the riders themselves do. It's a wonderful feeling to be a part of such an incredible program that really does have the power to change lives! If you want to help make a REAL difference right here in Brooklyn or Queens, email us today!
Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. We provide training for volunteers on site during regular lessons. NO EXPERIENCE is required to be a volunteer in our program. We provide all the training you will need. All you need is a desire to help and a willingness to learn to be a part of our program as a volunteer!
