About CORRAL

CORRAL is a faith-motivated, non-profit that acts as an intervention program for adolescent girls in high-risk situations in the Triangle Area. Our participants may be “high-risk” due to  socioeconomic status, trauma such as neglect, abuse, or, more frequently, a combination of these situations. We pair high-risk girls between the ages of 11 and 18 with rescued horses to promote healing, transformational growth, and ultimately, lasting life change. CORRAL is intended as a long-term intervention for the participants, requiring a minimum of one year’s commitment from each girl upon enrollment. Our staff provides intensely personal and high contact programming that includes only the uppermost standards of literacy and academic tutoring, vocational training, and equine assisted therapy programs, as well as, individual and group mental health sessions. CORRAL Riding Academy fulfills Wake County’s need for positive youth interventions by not only providing high-risk girls with positive interventions, but by equipping them with the life skills and career tools they will need to succeed in their adult lives.

Diversity Statement

CORRAL aims to serve the highest risk girls in our community. Among those risk factors is the influence of systemic racism. As members of a marginalized population, young people of color are statistically more likely to have negative health, academic and economic outcomes. Understanding this context, CORRAL bears the same responsibility to heal the trauma our girls have experienced due to systemic racism just as much as more commonly understood forms of trauma ie. physical or emotional abuse. 

CORRAL is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. Diversity is more than a commitment at CORRAL—it is the foundation of what we do. We are committed to walking with ALL stakeholders on a journey of anti-racism. We are fully focused on equity and justice. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply.

CORRAL Internships

At CORRAL, we don’t just give our interns leftover projects. Your time with us will be filled with opportunities to produce meaningful and impactful work. Our interns are exposed to a variety of aspects of running a non-profit and are given organizational ownership over their projects. We value growth as a team and as individuals, so interns will have bi-weekly performance feedback check-ins with their manager.

We are looking for passionate, motivated applicants who are at least university juniors or seniors enrolled in a B.S. or B.A. degree program related to the position. The non-profit life can get hectic at times, so we need detail-oriented self-starters that aren’t afraid to ask questions and think in innovative ways.

What Our Interns Have to Say

“My time at CORRAL instilled a passion within me to help children in at risk situations. Through building relationships with the girls, I have been more confident than ever to continue pursuing my degree in psychology. CORRAL provided a safe place to learn and grow, and took me COMPLETELY outside of my comfort zone. I’m extremely thankful for the staff who poured into my life, and the girls that have forever impacted me.” -Autumn, Programming Intern

“My favorite part of CORRAL was the enthusiasm each employee had for the mission of CORRAL. It is always fun to learn from people who are genuinely excited about what they do. The great work that these individuals do is often complicated and, on occasion, quite frustrating. However, each day was a new day and they showed up to work with fresh ideas and a smile. It was really inspiring.” –Jennifer, Business Intern

“I have learned so, so much from being an intern at CORRAL. It has grown me as a person and taught me so much! I think my favorite part about working at CORRAL has been having a part in seeing the girl’s grow and succeed throughout the programming year. It has been so cool to build relationships with the girls and get to see them choose change for their lives…This program is truly changing their lives and it has been a privilege to be a small part of that change.” -Rachel, Programming Intern
