What Does a Volunteer Do?

PALS relies on the generosity of our volunteers to ensure the sustainability of our organization. Volunteers assist PALS with program operations, administrative duties, special events planning, and fundraising initiatives throughout the year and ensure the success of the organization. PALS offers several types of volunteer positions:

Program Volunteers

Individuals interested in participating in the PALS therapeutic program offerings work alongside PALS staff in the barn as barn managers, horse leaders, and side walkers. These individuals interact closely with PALS clients and our herd to ensure the highest quality sessions are provided on a daily basis.

Administrative Volunteers

Individuals interested in assisting PALS with administrative duties ranging from public relations and marketing to grant research and preparation are welcome to join the PALS staff in our office. This group assists with the daily needs of the organization and ensure the long term sustainability of its programs.

Special Events Volunteers

Individuals interested in helping PALS plan for and then implement a variety of small and large scale events throughout the year are welcome to join any of the many committees which operate year-round to support each individual event. From fundraisers to community awareness events PALS is always looking for creative and energetic individuals to assist us ensuring the success of these events.
