Volunteer with Forward Stride

Kathy Kelly Region 9

We wouldn’t exist if it were not for our dedicated volunteers. Program volunteers work directly with the instructors or therapists to provide assistance prior to and during lessons. Responsibilities include participating in the lesson by leading the horse or sidewalking, as well as grooming and tacking the horses. Other volunteer opportunities include horse care, work on facilities projects, organizing special events, and assisting in our office.

Forward Stride provides the necessary training. The minimum age for volunteers is 12. All potential volunteers 18 years old and over are subject to a background check. We ask for at least a three-month commitment to a regular, weekly schedule.
