Volunteer Nation: 4 Events That Need Your Help This Weekend
The bases are loaded for another big weekend of U.S. eventing, with horse trials taking place from coast to coast. And they need YOUR help!
We’re exited to team up with eventingvolunteers.com each week to spotlight volunteer opportunities still available (at time of publication) for the upcoming weekend. For more details, click on the event name to be taken to that event’s eventingvolunteers.com portal.
Here are four USEA events that need your help this weekend! Visit eventingvolunteers.com for more opportunities to lend a hand including schooling events.
Event: Marlborough Horse Trials
Event: Equestrians Institute Horse Trials
It’s often said that volunteers are the backbone of our sport — because it’s true! Thanks to the USEA’s creation of eventingvolunteers.com, it’s easier than ever before to connect volunteers with organizers. A smartphone app, available for both iOS and Android devices, is available as well.
Prospective volunteers can use eventingvolunteers.com to sign up for open shifts and duties, check in with organizers and track their hours for the Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP). After a simple sign-up process, volunteers can select a specific event and easily see which assignments and shifts are the most needed and which are already filled.
Organizers can use the website to track the status of filled or open volunteer positions with at-a-glance visualization of which assignments still need to be filled. They will be able to tell very quickly if they are short a dressage scribe for the day, or perhaps three more fence judges are needed. They can also more easily get in touch with a specific group of volunteers, rather than sorting through individual emails.
