The Ranch Las Vegas

Volunteer

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our non-profit! We have opportunities for adults and teens (14 and older) to volunteer at The Ranch Las Vegas or for our non-profit, Horses4Heroes. Volunteers assist with day-to-day ranch activities including chores, serve as Ride Staff Assistants or Interns, and staff events, programs and activities. Volunteers can also help with the business of the non-profit, working in the office, Ranch House or in the community. We welcome individuals, groups, clubs, and businesses!

Volunteer Opportunities

We provide opportunities for volunteers to get acquainted with all areas of our center, from working events to working with horses and everything in between.  We are open Tuesday-Saturday, most days 9 am to 5 pm.  We allow volunteers to pick and choose the day of the week, shift (AM or PM) and specific jobs.  New volunteers who are new to horses and our center will start out working events and assisting with center operations.  We will offer training for specific jobs.  Volunteers who serve TWO, four-hour shifts per month will be invited to our monthly Volunteer Appreciation event  

Group Volunteer Opportunities

We welcome groups from other service organizations, corporations and non-profits, as well as Honor Society, Key Club, JROTC, Explorers, and Girl Scouts and Scouts.  Volunteers younger than 14 must be supervised by parents, teachers or troop leaders or coaches.  

Internships/Ride & Ranch Staff Assistants

We have a limited number of openings for adults, 18 and older, to work with our Ride and Ranch Staff, assisting with lessons and lesson plans, developing and implementing camp schedules, organizing and staffing events, and working with our EAL Team, to learn the role horsemanship plays in aiding those who need a hand up, not a hand out.  Opportunities exist to become certified through the O.K. Corral Series as well as earning college credit, while working with and caring for our horses.  In exchange for your service to our organization, center and clients, you can earn riding time, take lessons, or send your kids to our camps.   Email horses4heroes@gmail.com for more information.
