Stormhaven’s desire is to provide a safe haven for families with children who are struggling, whether physically, emotionally, or behaviorally. We offer free sessions for children ages 5-18 and also include several ways to volunteer. Applications are available and a phone interview is required. Currently we have the following available:

VOLUNTEERS WORKING WITH THE CHILDREN - The role of working one-on-one with children in sessions and training/riding our horses are reserved for staff and senior volunteers only. SYR incorporates a specific horsemanship technique to provide unity and routine among our leaders and within herd relationships. Training is available each year for those positions from March-May and requires a commitment of at least one full year (March-November) of volunteering.
