DreamPower exists only because of the time, energy and commitment given freely by our
amazing and wonderful volunteers. The first step in becoming a volunteer is to attend a New
Volunteer Orientation. These are held once a month at DreamPower. At the New Volunteer
Orientation you will learn about the DreamPower programs, learn about current volunteer
opportunities, tour the facility and meet the DreamPower horses. The minimum age to volunteer
is 14. No horse experience is required to volunteer at DreamPower, but we welcome and
appreciate volunteers with solid horse experience.
