How to Become a Volunteer

Getting Started

Download and read our Volunteer Handbook to further explore volunteering at Strongwater.

Then download our Volunteer Registration Form. (If you are under 18 years of age, you must have your application signed by a parent or legal guardian.)

Next Steps

After you submit the Volunteer Registration Form, a staff member will review it and contact you to schedule a date for your volunteer orientation and answer any questions you may have. 

Together, you will agree upon a role that best suits your interests and qualifications as well as Strongwater’s needs.

Why Volunteer?

All prospective volunteers must attend an orientation
and bring a driver’s license or other form of government-issued photo ID.

2024 Volunteer Orientation Dates​

The orientation includes:

  • An introduction to Strongwater’s programs and the community we serve
  • An overview of policies and procedures
  • A tour of the facility
  • An opportunity to meet our horses
  • Sign-ups for additional training where necessary

Please wear weather appropriate clothing and sturdy shoes or boots, as orientation sessions are held rain or shine!
