Description of Volunteer Opportunities/Responsibilities:
NVTRP is continually recruiting volunteers to serve on each of its fourteen "crews," a morning and afternoon crew for each day of the week. Roughly 250 serve in this capacity each week, helping with barn chores, assisting with lessons, and caring for the horses. People 14 years of age and older are welcome and no prior horse experience is needed.

In addition, the organization regularly hosts corporate groups to do one-time volunteer projects, which usually entail outside maintenance work on the 17-acre property, such as painting fences, yard work, or light repairs.

Types of Volunteers Needed: Adults; Teens (13 and up); Groups of more than 25 volunteers; Corporate volunteer groups
