If you have a heart for helping humans and horses, Rose of Sharon Equestrian School may be just the place for you. It often requires as many as three people beyond the instructor to assist our students in reaping the full benefit of what the program has to offer. While experience with horses and/or people with special needs is helpful, it is not required. What is required is the availability to attend volunteer training as well as the willingness to honor a weekly commitment to a student in a patient and non-judgemental manner.
ROSES continues to provide volunteer and internship opportunities for students in need of field experiences at the college level as well those seeking to earn student service learning hours required for high school graduation. Seasoned citizens are finding ways to bring their work experiences and skills out of retirement while volunteering at Rose of Sharon Equestrian School. ROSES has a variety of plans for the future which may be of interest to Eagle Scouts and other organizations looking for ways to give back to the community.
