HETRA Seeks Difference-Makers to Volunteer, No Experience Needed

Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy (HETRA, HETRA.org) in Gretna is looking to grow its team of volunteers. Currently serving over 150 participants a week, volunteers are the heart of HETRA. Without them, HETRA cannot accomplish their mission to improve the quality of life both physically and emotionally for adults and children of all ability levels through equine-assisted activities. Every hour donated makes a difference in the lives of their participants. While HETRA does not require any previous experience, volunteers must be 12 years or older and must be able to work independently with minimal staff supervision.

Whether you have years of horse experience or none, the dedicated HETRA staff will train you on what you need to know to serve their beloved participants effectively. They currently need additional greeters, session volunteers, and barn maintenance helpers.

If you’re interested in becoming a difference-maker at Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy, please visit their website at HETRA.org/Volunteer/ or call (402) 359-8830 to sign up for a prospective volunteer tour on February 10. Subsequent training will take place on February 18. Can’t make this date? Their volunteer tours typically occur every second Thursday of the month, and they’d love to see you there. Together, you’ll change lives one stride at a time!
