Tutoring: Click here for Volunteer Form
The youth involved in Work to Ride are required to participate in our tutoring program and must maintain passing grades in order to play on the polo team. We depend on volunteer tutors to help accomplish this task. As a tutor you will work one on one with a child in our program after school at the barn. The time commitment is flexible, but regular and consistent commitment is needed.
Saturday Work Team:
Put together a team of people to come to the barn on a Saturday morning to do yard work, cleaning and light construction.
Volunteer time for construction or cleaning projects:
We are always working to improve the facilities where our programs are located. If you have construction skills or just have a group that wants to help clean a site, clear trails or garden, we’d love to have you come visit for a day.
If you are a college-aged student and want an amazing experience learning about barn management, urban youth work while getting hands-on experience, come and join us for a summer (or a year) as an intern.
Community Service Learning Credits:
Work to Ride welcomes any high school age student who would like to earn their Community Service Learning Credits with us. Several students from Philadelphia and the suburban area request our sponsorship annually. Students can earn their credits in a variety of ways during the weekday or weekend. Work to Ride staff will arrange a schedule that is workable for the student on a long-term or short-term request.
Please call (215) 877-4419 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on any of the programs.

Help us make our $50,000 goal by January 1, 2015
Our shortfall is your oppportunity to really help the Work to Ride youth and our ponies. The Interscholastic Arena Polo season is underway and the kids are pumped and practicing hard. The outdoor arena is cold and the winds are whipping at 6:00 pm when the kids come nightly to exercise the polo ponies but their enthusiasm remains steadfast as they contemplate each upcoming game. "When is our next game ?" they say, or "Who is on their team? " or "Do you think we can win? " . The optimism is catchy and the opportunites make what we do so much fun so please donate now.
