Our Volunteers

After COVID delays, our semester will start in March 2021. To prepare our volunteers for the tasks ahead, the first round of Volunteer Training will take place in February 2021.

Due to COVID restrictions on the numbers of people gathering, and keeping everyone’s safety in mind, we will train our volunteers in very small groups in further training sessions throughout the year. COVID safety protocol, including the wearing of masks and appropriate social distancing, is in place at Wilderwood.

Volunteer Training will involve a program of activities, learning sessions, Volunteer T-shirts, and all the information you’ll need to make a difference in the lives of autistic adults and the beautiful horses at Wilderwood.

HUGE thanks to U.S. Eagle Federal Credit Union for their support of the Volunteer Training Day 2021 at Wilderwood!

A special thank you, too, for our wonderful new Board members, Jayme (and husband Joe) and Amanda. Your enthusiasm is contagious and your commitment to this cause is an amazing gift.
