After you complete and submit the Volunteer Registration Form, a Strongwater staff member will review it and contact you to schedule a date for your volunteer orientation and to answer any questions you may have. Together, you will agree upon a role that best suits your interests and qualifications and Strongwater’s needs
All prospective volunteers must attend a volunteer orientation. Prospective volunteers must bring a driver’s license, or another form of government-issued photo ID to the orientation. If you are under 18 years of age, you must have your application signed by a parent or legal guardian.
The volunteer orientation includes an overview of Strongwater’s programs, an explanation of the clients we serve, an opportunity to meet our horses, and an overview of our policies and procedures. It also includes a tour of the facility. Please wear warm clothing and sturdy shoes or boots as orientation sessions are held rain or shine.
At the conclusion of the orientation session, volunteers will confirm their role(s) as a volunteer and if necessary, sign up for additional training. Roles include sidewalker, horse leader, feeder, office volunteer, etc.
