2023 Volunteer Paperwork

update your info

SMILES volunteers are required to update their personal information every year.  This is due to our Premier Accredited Center with PATH Intl.  SMILES is up for reaccreditation in early 2023, so we are asking that volunteers complete this form as soon as possible!

We've made this very easy this year by having volunteers use a new, user-friendly online form!  Your data will be downloaded directly in our database, so there will be no need for paper files or hours of data entry!


Please click the button below to get started.  You will be able to see the form in its entirety, and it should only take you a few minutes to fill out.  Once you've completed it and hit the submit button, you should receive an email confirmation with a copy of your responses.  If you made a mistake, that's okay, just let us know!


Thank you so much for taking care of this quickly for us!

Volunteer Training Videos

SMILES staff continues to create training videos for our volunteers. These videos cover skills such as horse handling and saddling, but also will demonstrate how to approach class props, how volunteers can help with mounting, etc. SMILES saves all of these videos on a YouTube channel specifically for our volunteers! Please click the link and subscribe, so that you never miss a new video!
