“I volunteer because it is a place where I have a tangible impact on other people’s lives through doing something I love to do - working with horses. It is also a place where I feel safe and am able to grow my skills and character.”
– Shelby Janes
“I volunteer because it is good for my mind, body, and soul. I get to build amazing relationships with the horses, riders, and staff. It gives me a purpose beyond that of the workplace and school. I get to see lives changed, which in turn changes my life because I get inspired to never give up on the things that I want to achieve.”
“I volunteer at Warm Beach Camp because it allows me to be me and not feel like I have to prove myself to anyone. Camp is where I am able to continue learning about horses, help others achieve their full potential, and it feels like a place that I am welcome for being me. I am willing to drive an hour every weekend to volunteer for roughly 4 to 5 hours a week just to get my horse time. Also Warm beach camp is a place that is helping me overcome obstacles in my past and is showing me what being part of a community feels like. The staff that work there year round make you feel welcome and there is never a dull moment. Warm beach camp is a place that I can call home and want to continue being a part of this horse community forever. If there is anything else you need, I am happy to help.“
