Time

Time Out Foundation owes much of its success to the tireless work of its many volunteers, including teens who have stuck with the organization following completion of their time as formal participants, parents who have seen their children thrive at Time Out Foundation, and members of the local community who have offered their time to serve on our board, help us with fundraising, and generally do the things that keep a ship like this afloat.

Our volunteers are critical. They come here and get dirty and listen to these kids and bring new life to the program just because they are who they are. Some come from different cultural backgrounds, some from different socioeconomic backgrounds. Others bring their expertise—we’ve had gardeners, people with experience fundraising. Volunteers bring the world to us, and we couldn’t exist without them.
— Cory Kalser, TOF founder

By volunteering, you can give back to your community, have fun, and make new friends, all while enriching and enhancing the lives of the children who come here. We are always looking for new volunteers with experience in fundraising, legal matters, governance, mentoring, horse care, gardening, construction/carpentry, or trail maintenance. Time Out Foundation is a farm, so there are always fences to mend, animals to care for, and equipment to maintain.

We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, including students from local high schools and colleges. We match individuals who express interest in volunteering with positions that fit their personal skillsets.

Volunteers who wish to work directly with the children as assistant instructors or mentors must first complete our formal mentorship training program. Individuals with extensive experience working with horses (especially as NAHRA-trained therapeutic riding instructors) are welcome to help us in our equine-therapy program. If you’re interested in volunteering with us in any capacity, please let us know—we want to hear from you!]
