CHAPS Volunteer Training Begins Jan. 10

CHAPS, Sheridan's Equine Assisted Therapy Program, will hold a series of volunteer training sessions beginning Tuesday, January 10th at Sheridan College.

Sue Suddith, CHAPS Executive Director, outlines the training classes.

She says that even if working with horses might not be your thing, there are plenty of ways to volunteer.

Those could include stall therapy, side walkers that watch the clients on the horse, data entry, fundraising, or collecting donation jars from businesses in Sheridan and Johnson counties.

She added that the training sessions are beneficial to anyone wanting to volunteer in any capacity, in understanding what CHAPS does and for what they raise money.

The first session at the college is in the Whitney Building, Room 150 at 10 am.

The subsequent sessions for those interested in working with clients will take place at CHAPS' LaRue Young Arena at 501 US Highway 14 E. (5 miles from the interstate on Highway 14 E)

Those sessions will take place at 11 am on January 21st, February 4th and 18th.

For more information call CHAPS at 673-6161.
