Volunteer opportunities are plentiful at HopeWell Ranch. With an ever expanding group of participants, we rely heavily on the kindness and involvement of volunteers. We have opportunities for people to work with children, our equine, our smaller animals, vegetables, flowers, herb gardens, maintenance, painting, orchard work, construction of buildings, and multitude of other projects that are always happening.All potential volunteers will need to complete and submit a volunteer application form.
Potential volunteers over the age of 18 will need to agree to a background check. Volunteers will be interviewed by the Program Director or other lead volunteer staff and attend two orientation sessions. Volunteering at HopeWell Ranch is a great professional experience for younger volunteers as well as adults. You will have opportunity to build your professionalism, interpersonal communication skills, and character qualities such as reliability and integrity. You may also learn more about animal care, gardening, horse training, equine therapy, etc. We do have a performance evaluation to provide you feedback and determine how we can help you further develop your skills.
If you are interested in volunteering for our program, please contact us about orientation dates! You will need to attend an orientation, complete an application, complete a background check (for those over the age of 18), and possibly meet with Jodi or a LEAD volunteer. Those interested in a LEAD volunteer role will also need to provide a reference from a Pastor or other Christian leader.
