Horse Empowered Learning Programs, Inc.

Volunteering at H.E.L.P.


We are excited about your interest in volunteering at H.E.L.P.! Volunteers are the backbone of any equestrian program for people with disabilities. Most of our clients cannot participate without the physical, emotional, and psychological support of our volunteers.

There are also other volunteer opportunities apart from working directly with clients. We are always in need of volunteers to help keep our facilities and grounds tidy, feed and care for the horses, perform administrative duties, and many other important activities.

As a volunteer, you will be a part of a professional and dedicated team. We also have a lot of fun! Therapeutic riding brings feelings of boundless joy and accomplishment to everyone involved. The rewards for both you and our clients make volunteering efforts very worthwhile.


Sign Up to Volunteer

To become a H.E.L.P. volunteer, we recommend that you first visit our facilities to learn about what it’s like to volunteer. A good time to visit is on Saturdays between 11:00am-12:00pm. Please contact us to schedule your visit. Then, download and print the H.E.L.P. Volunteer Application and bring a completed copy with you to the next Volunteer Orientation.

Volunteer Orientation

Volunteer Orientation is typically held at H.E.L.P. on the 3rd Saturday of each month (but can vary) from 1:30pm - 4:00pm. At orientation, you’ll learn more about the organization, all the different volunteer opportunities available to you, important safety and regulatory information, and much more. We look forward to seeing you there!
