NCMT Super Troopers Volunteer Orientation
January 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
NCMT Super Troopers Program is looking for volunteers ages 14 and up for our Therapeutic Program. Volunteer Orientation is coming up soon, for more information email Felicia Gray Alford firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on our website newcanaanmountedtroop.org
The Super Troopers program provides equine therapeutic services to children and adults with special needs, with the assistance of PATH International certified instructors and dedicated volunteers. We have both an adaptive riding program as well as an equine care program for those students that do not want to ride but would still like to spend time with the horses.
Our volunteers choose their time and days to volunteer. We have two areas that the volunteers help out with. One is our Adaptive Riding Program where they will walk/jog alongside a mounted student during their class time. Class time is usually 30 – 60 min long. Our other volunteer opportunity is during our Equine Care Program. This type of class is approx 45 min long. You would be paired with a student to help with class activities as well as keep them safe while in the barn. Classes are held on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
Orientations will be held Jan 3rd and 5th at NCMT from 10-12noon. Signup is require, please contact Felicia for a link to sign up.
