General Information
Volunteers are the heart of STAR Equestrian Center! Without their dedication, loyalty and hard work, it would not be possible for us to fulfill our mission. There are many individual reasons why people volunteer with us, but all provide the chance to join a thriving, nurturing community whose goal is to positively impact the lives of as many people with special needs as possible. Our volunteers come from all backgrounds and ages. Many have little personal experience with horses or people with disabilities. Some are teenagers who are earning service hours. Others are retired teachers, social workers or business people looking to give back. And some are lifelong horse people who feel the calling to help people understand how the bond between a horse and a human can change a life.

While some of our volunteers have experience with horses or working with people with special needs, it is by no means a requirement. All of our volunteers, no matter their experience, attend an orientation to familiarize themselves with our safety and operational procedures.

STAR Equestrian Center offers a wide range of volunteering opportunities. Some require horse experience, but many do not. There are many ways in which our volunteers give back. All we need is your willingness to give of yourself and commit your time. Volunteer opportunities include:
