New Resource Connecting You With Authors of PATH Intl. Strides!
Megan Ellis, a PATH Intl. Certified Advanced Instructor, is the program operations manager at High Hopes Therapeutic Riding, Inc., a PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center in Old Lyme, CT. She is a veteran, who served 10 years in the U.S. Army.
Megan is the author of, The Right Fit: Volunteer Considerations for Veterans' Programs, an article in the Summer 2018 issue of PATH Intl. Strides.
As with any therapeutic horsemanship program, volunteer support is critical to the safety and success of programs that help veterans meet physical, emotional and cognitive challenges.Volunteers can be instrumental in many areas, such as developing program curriculum, garnering community support, helping with governance, being involved in fundraising and assisting with service delivery. As these programs continue to grow, having effective volunteer management strategies in place at all levels is critical.
Megan will highlight important program considerations to selecting the right volunteers to work with veterans, which involves recruitment, screening, interviewing and role assignment; providing training specific to the volunteer's role with this unique population; and supporting volunteers throughout their service to the center.
