"Give, and it shall be given unto you ... Luke 6:38


Volunteers in action!

Volunteering with JAKES Club's TSC,Therapeutic Saddle Club, program is one of the most crucial roles in our ministry serving children. For one rider, alone, you may have up to 5 volunteers: Horse Leader, Sidewalkers, game attendants and Supervisor.


Because it is important for our TSC riders to have continuity in their program, we ask that volunteers commit to at least two hours, once a week per TSC season.

Building the volunteers confidence is important and here at JAKES Club we are dedicated to train and help adults, youth (minimum age 10 years) and families do just that.


Contact us and help make the difference!
