Project: Stable Management Vocational Development Program
Vital Sign: Learning
Total Grant: $14,000
This program will expand the Cowichan Therapeutic Riding Association's Stable Management Vocational Development Program. The program uses the environmental practices and educational possibilities of stable management to create real-world employment opportunities for people with disabilities in our community. It uses the established therapeutic environment of horsemanship to develop employment skills based in the equestrian/agricultural industry, which are transferable to many other employment possibilities. Essential work experience is gained through volunteer roles.
