Be a Catalyst for Change



Thank you for choosing to volunteer your time to improve the lives of those at Hunkapi Programs. Volunteers are vital to the operation of Hunkapi. In fact, we call our volunteers Catalysts because without them, the life changing moments our participants experience every day, would not be possible.

No previous experience with horses or disabilities is necessary – you will be taught everything you need to know! At Hunkapi volunteers can choose from a wide variety of jobs, all of which are designed to support the growth and expansion of our program. No matter your talents or interests, we need you!

Catalyst Orientations and Advanced Skill Trainings are held on a regular basis. Hunkapi requires that all Catalysts participate in a basic training session to learn about program operations, ability awareness and safety procedures. After initial orientation is complete, Catalysts continue on to skill specific trainings that provide the strong foundational knowledge to assist in our sessions. For more details about volunteering, catalyst application, training dates and descriptions please view our documents below or contact our office.
