Our volunteers are here to help Journey Of Hope and to serve God. Everyone who volunteers were lead here by the greater power of God and we are so grateful for the help we that receive. The volunteers have spent countless hours over the years helping around the farm.
We have many opportunities to plug in and have divided them into 5 different areas of the farm. Barn volunteer ( Open to teens and adults that help take care of the horses with feeding and other barn management duties, 365 days a year). Next we have Field volunteers, Teen and adult leaders; birthday party, field trip and event volunteers. We even have some opportunities that aren’t even at the farm.
These volunteers work all year round and are responsible for taking care of the horses and other barn management duties: cleaning the stalls, taking horses in and out to fields, and the tack room. We offer 2 shifts per day, one in morning (8:00-10:00) and one in evening for about an hour ( 5:00-6:00) Horse experience is prefer but not required because we will train you. We have many spots available so you don’t have to pick up everyday but at least one spot a week if possible is helpful.
This Opportunity is open for 2x a week, 52 weeks a year. You can come in mornings or midday when the horses are in - weather permitted. Duties will include: cleaning manure in the ring, fill ring buckets with water, cleaning the fields, scrubbing water troughs and mending down boards.
If you like to work with the horses and clients, this is great for you. Teen( 10-17) and adults 18+ can work during the day when we’re open to clients( all year round). The duties will be helping clients with grooming, tacking and untacking, and just being an extra pair of hands during lessons. We’re looking for 4-6 people for this. Would prefer some horse experience but I will train.
During the year we offer on farm site birthday parties, field trips and events. We are looking for those weekend warriors that don’t have a lot of extra time but want to serve. Duties would include tacking and untacking horses, walking horses around the ring and putting the horses in the field. Occasionally help clean up.
Just like any barn there is always repairs so someone with handyman skills, fundraising, grant and newsletter writing, office assistant. board members. and someone to make dump and hay runs.
