Come work with us

CORRAL is a non-profit organization that acts as an intervention program for at-risk, adolescent girls in the Triangle Area. Our participants may be “at-risk” due to trauma, neglect, abuse, socioeconomic status, or, more frequently, a combination of these situations. We use a holistic approach including Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, tutoring, mentoring, and vocational training. Our goal is to teach participants how to be in healthy and whole relationships, knowing that this will lead to further transformational healing. The work we do can be hard at times, but the reward of seeing the lives of young women change for the better is what makes it all worth it.

What We’re Doing

The CORRAL Riding Academy is a faith-based nonprofit operating out of Cary, North Carolina. We pair at-risk girls middle & high schoolers  with rescued horses to promote lasting life change. CORRAL is intended as a long-term intervention for these girls, requiring a minimum of one year’s commitment from each participant. CORRAL’s program 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. These efforts considerably reduce recidivism and risky behaviors among young women in our county, creating a future of strong, independent individuals.

How We’re Doing It

Being part of the CORRAL team means being ready to work hard and work joyfully towards this mission. We take our jobs seriously...but try not to take ourselves too seriously. Our team is fun, collaborative, and filled with supportive people (and their dogs).  We have chocolate on Fridays and coffee on Mondays. When things get crazy, we’re all hands on deck. When things slow down, we rest well. 

Job Description

The Education Manager role at CORRAL Riding Academy is a key component to the girls’ success. This person is crucial to equip the girls with the appropriate life skills and career tools that they need to begin and continue on the right track. This position is Full Time (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday 11a-7p, Friday: 9a - 5p, Saturday 8:30 a.m. - 5p).

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. As a CORRAL intern, you have strong verbal and written communication skills, including public speaking and interpersonal communications. You are willing to resolve conflict and make big decisions. Although we do serious work at the farm, we don’t always take ourselves so seriously. You’ll thrive in our fun, collaborative environment that’s filled with supportive people (plus their dogs). While our staff loves to work together and so do you, you also possess the ability to work independently with self-direction.

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
