Not only do we need help in the arena with the clients and horses, we also need help preparing/selling food, selling SMILES logo wear, checking in clients/volunteers, etc. We'd love your help on this special day!
Fall Session Updates
September 27-November 27
*No classes Saturday , October 23 due to Miles for SMILES 5k
*No classes Thursday & Friday, November 25 & 26 in observance of Thanksgiving.
Please sign up for the Fall Session using the link below. It will show you all of the class times that are available. Please remember that we ask volunteers to commit to at least 1 class for the entire 9-week session. If you are unable to make that commitment, contact the Volunteer Coordinator to discuss other options.
We have to fill 160 volunteer positions every single week! Please help us by committing to an extra class this fall!
Current volunteers are always welcome to attend new volunteer training as a refresher before a session. I have 2 dates schedule for training prior to the Fall Session:
Thursday, September 9: 5pm-8pm
Saturday, September 11: 9am-12pm
Please reserve your training spot using the link below!
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!
