Thank you for you interest in Volunteering at STARS! We are so glad you text or clicked!

STARS is a unique and inspiring volunteer experience all on its own. As one of Siouxland’s most established non-profit organizations, you will learn and grow through the positive and powerful ways horses can transform human lives.

No matter what your role, this is a program in which your involvement will make real, long-lasting change in a rewarding and satisfying setting. Your time as a volunteer will create laughter, love, accomplishment, and enrichment with everyone around you each and every time you serve. This is one experience where you will see change, and one that will change you.

No horse experience is necessary to participate at STARS. We do our best to make sure everyone is in a placement best suited to his/her needs as a volunteer. You may get to lead a horse, assist a client beside a horse, or help with horse care on a weekly basis. You might be a fabulous gardener or a whiz on the computer.

Whatever your skill or interest, we can use your help. Whatever your placement, you can be sure you will enjoy a rewarding experience.
