Volunteers sought for LoveWay, will be trained to help children

MIDDLEBURY — LoveWay Inc., located near Middlebury, is looking for volunteers who are interested in helping with the spring semester of classes that begins the week of Jan. 28 and runs through May 4.

Anyone who would like to volunteer can attend one of the following trainings: Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; Wednesday from 6 to 8:30 p.m.; Jan. 22 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. or Jan. 24 from 10 a.m. to 12: 30 p.m.

Volunteers will once per week help children and adults with special needs as they learn to groom, tack and ride their horse. LoveWay’s riders require around 150 volunteers each semester as some may require the help from up to three people each lesson. Volunteers ensure the safety of the rider and assist them with balance, focus or concentration skills as needed.

New volunteers who attend the training will be given a tour of the facility and learn how to groom, tack, and lead a horse in a hands-on learning environment. The training will instruct them on the proper procedures for safely working with the horses and what to expect when helping the students. Prior knowledge of horses is not required, but those interested should be at least 16 years old. Volunteer opportunities are available during the daytime, evening, and on Saturday mornings.

Anyone who would like to volunteer for the spring semester of classes should contact Angie Miranda, volunteer coordinator, at 574-825-5666 or info@lovewayinc.org.

Poll

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
