Our volunteers are the life-blood of our organization. Without their dedication and commitment we cannot offer the programs that benefit our participants in so many ways, or keep our equine partners happy in their work. We LOVE our volunteers!
Volunteering with EAAT programs like HHH is much more than a regular donation of time, talents and energy to help support the people we serve. Our volunteers develop lasting bonds and friendships with both Equine and Human participants. To witness the healing power of horses with our students is a magical experience.
We need volunteers to help in the barn, facility and grounds, with grooming and tacking, side-walking and leading as well as with fundraising and administrative tasks. Training is required and provided for free.
To start volunteering with Horses Healing Humans, please follow these 3 easy steps:
