Our volunteers help with grooming and handling horses, setting up and cleaning up for sessions, side walking during sessions, helping kids and families around the ranch, helping with events, helping out in our office and for activities for our non profit organization.
We have volunteers of all different backgrounds and with different interests. Whether you are interested in horse handling, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, child education, special education, ranch management, or just having some fun making a difference in a child’s life, we need your help! The minimum age requirement is 16 years old.
Our volunteers receive a Leaps & Bounds t-shirt and recognition/service awards at appreciation events throughout the year!
We are happy to sign off on community service hours for school requirements, college entrance, physical/occupational therapy school applications, etc. We also provide letters of reference for job/school applications.
Volunteer Orientations are held monthly. If you are over 16 years of age and interested in volunteering, email our coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I became very curious about what went on at Leaps & Bounds after riding my horse past them many mornings. Those kiddos, people and horses really appeared to be enjoying themselves! I decided to go to their orientation and was mesmerized by what Cassandra had to say about their mission and goals. What I saw was a little more than astounding. The professionalism and organization really appealed to me. It is not often in a lifetime you get to surround yourself with people so friendly, selfless, and totally dedicated to helping these kiddos. The parents are my heroes. What examples they are of selflessness, love and determination. The phenomenal horses all have their own stories and seem to know their purpose. There is such reward in being involved in something so much bigger than myself and sharing in the passion that all these people have. I am actually grateful to Leaps & Bounds for the opportunity to serve. I have learned so much. If you want to put some real purpose in your life, I can’t recommend Leaps & Bounds enough. Just show up and be blessed.”- Nancy Nelson
