Who are we looking for?

At Jake E’s Riding Round Up we have a huge need for volunteers year-round. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and an array of professions.  They come in a variety of ages and offer a variation of time commitments to the organization.

All Jake E’s volunteers, however, have one thing in common – their heart for making a difference. At Jake E’s Riding Round Up our volunteers have tremendous respect and interest in our clients and their disabilities, as well as for our animals and their needs. We have a solid need for two types of volunteers at Jake E’s Riding Round Up – “regular” volunteers and “occasional” volunteers.

Our “regular” volunteers are individuals that give of themselves and their time on a “regular” basis. They may be involved with regular facility maintenance, office duties or equine care. Many of our “regular” volunteers work as side-walkers, instructor assistants and trainer for our horses. Alertness, agility and self-awareness are important for “regular” volunteers if they are working with Jake E’s animals or clients.

We are always looking for reliable, punctual, physically fit, “regular” volunteers to add to our Volunteer Team. Reliability and punctuality are key ingredients for Jake E’s volunteers. Once you commit, and are trained – we plan on you being here. Arriving late can be frustrating for our clients and students. Jake E’s volunteers are aware of this, and typically arrive 15 or more minutes before each lesson or therapy session.

We also have a need for “occasional” volunteers at Jake E’s Riding Round Up that came as church groups, school groups, scouting clubs or family units to volunteer their time to keep our facility clean, safe and beautiful. Our “occasional” volunteers typically set up a day to come and work. These groups plan a project ahead of time with our Director Jana Ewing where they can create a special project for the day. Recent “occasional” volunteer groups have been involved with painting, clearing brush, mowing, planting, cleaning and many other special projects.

LindaHorseSelfieJerryTractorJerryHorseSelfieHorse knowledge is nice, but certainly not mandatory for any of our volunteers at Jake E’s. If our volunteer opportunities are of interest, and you have a passion for working with others in a positive environment – we hope to hear from you soon. Give us a call at 972.962.2828 for more information.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and professions yet share a common interest in helping others.
