Volunteer Roles

The First Step to becoming a Volunteer

The first step in becoming a volunteer is to come to one of our first-timer events:

FARM DAYS

FARM DAYS

Farm Days give you a better understanding of the farm, the learning environment and the program as a whole. We hold them almost every month and they’re a great way to serve as group or family! Sign up for a tour of the farm and/or plan to spend the morning volunteering alongside other volunteers. The decision is yours.

BREAKFAST ON THE FARM

BREAKFAST ON THE FARM

Enjoy a quiet morning on the farm with a Farm Breakfast and a cup of coffee. Breakfast on the Farm is followed by a 45-minute tour of the farm and an explanation of the program and how to become involved. Families are welcome. This is a great way to learn about CORRAL before the hustle of the weekend takes off.

DERBY DINNER

DERBY DINNER

Join us for an evening of Jockeys, Juleps & Jazz at our annual Derby Dinner, a Kentucky Derby themed fundraising dinner. This gala is the perfect time for current CORRAL Champions to invite their friends who share a heart for the cause to a lovely evening where they’ll learn all about CORRAL, the impact that is happening on the farm and how they can join in too. Derby hats and bow ties recommended!
