It takes a lot of work to run a ranch. We are always looking for help! There are many moving parts along with making sure the animals are cared for. If there is something you enjoy doing, from grooming horses to taking pictures, let us know! To get started, learn how to complete our Volunteer Orientation:
Volunteer Orientation is 2-3 hour class where you learn the "in' and out's" of the ranch. You will learn how to do chores, horse safety, and how to handle, groom, and feed the horses, clean stalls and operate equipment.
We have had many people come and complete orientation, and then unfortunately we never see them again. To make sure we value one another's time, there will be a $55 Orientation Fee. Once you completed your Volunteer Orientation, you are free to schedule times to volunteer when your available and as often as you desire.
To get started volunteering complete our Volunteer Application, then contact us to schedule your interview, complete our wavier, then we will schedule your Volunteer Orientation according to what works with you. Here are some areas to volunteer:
We are looking for adults to mentor and build relationships with the youth that come to 2CYR. If you are interested in overseeing chores and getting to know our youth on an individual basis, to speak life and God's love into their hearts, please contact us to schedule an interview.
Horses eat a lot of hay, and they like to have their hair combed. They poop a lot too. If you are interested in swinging by the ranch to feed the horses hay and grain, clean their stalls, maybe give their coats a good brush, you will make a best friend!
12 acres is a lot of grass! If you like to mow or weed-whip, weed and maintain flower beds, or clean up the grounds, you have found your happy-place!
We are always looking for specialists, from electrical to plumbing, to framing. We have projects fixing our our barn, putting in fencing, wiring lights, or simply painting!
2nd Chance Youth Ranch is looking for horse instructors for riding lessons. Or, if you are willing to supervise volunteers or mentor a youth, we have a spot for you
