Volunteering with GallopNYC is Rewarding, Exciting, and Fun

Volunteers enjoy the personal satisfaction of helping children and adults with developmental, emotional, social, and physical challenges, all while working with and being around horses, one of nature’s most empathetic animals.

We ask volunteers to commit to two hours of service a week. 

Questions? email volunteer@gallopnyc.org, or call 646.233.4507.

Ready to start? Sign up here!

What happens next?

After you sign up, you’ll be offered a brief orientation on line and then we’ll schedule an on-site hands on orientation. After orientations are complete, you’re free to find a volunteer opportunity that fits your schedule and sign up!
