Everyday Heroes is a partnership between Crown Counseling and Exceptional Equestrian Unlimited (EEU) of Hobart, IN to provide a 6-week program for youth ages 13-18 years old to provide instrumental services for development and upkeep of the horse stables and facilities. Youth will be transported every Thursday afternoon, beginning June 29th, to the stables and will be supervised by therapeutic staff as well as professional Equine personnel. At the end of the 6-weeks, each child will be encouraged to engage with and ride a horse. Volunteer times will be from 2 pm to 4 pm.
- Youth who volunteer just 1 hour per week are 50% less likely to abuse drugs. alcohol, and cigarettes when compared to those who don't.
- Youth who volunteer not only help others, but also help themselves and have better outcomes than those that don't.
