Would you like to become a volunteer?

Volunteers are an important part of any PATH Int. Center activity. Without the extra sets of hands to help riders sit tall, to groom and care for horses, or to type the newsletter, it would be difficult to operate a Center. PATH Int. Centers take considerable care and effort to find, train and keep excellent and motivated volunteers.

PATH Int. Centers offer an ideal volunteer opportunity for thousands of adults and young people: Volunteering provides:

  •  An outdoor activity
  •  A service that results in joy and growth for people with disabilities
  •  Light physical work and exercise
  •  Interaction with animals in a farm setting
  •  An expanded circle of friends
  •  Intangible rewards in the smiles, progress in skill, and enthusiasm from everyone involved
  •  A chance to help others •
  •  PE hours for home schooled students •
  •  Service hours for service learning students 
  •  Activities for clubs and professional organizations

As a volunteer you can:

  •  Act as a side-walker for mounted participants in the arena
  •  Lead horses during a riding lesson or therapy session
  •  Prepare and tack horses for lessons
  •  Clean tack
  •  Become part of the horse care team
  •  Sit on a Center advisory board Provide professional services such as accounting, legal support or any number of other invaluable “pro bono” work
  •  Perform clerical work in the office
  •  Organize fund-raisers or public relations campaigns
  •  Work toward becoming a PATH Int. Instructor
  •  Some dedicated volunteers eventually transition and become staff
