Volunteer

There are always volunteer opportunities with Saratoga WarHorse. As a volunteer, you will spend time with Veterans as they work to get their lives back on track. Through the Saratoga WarHorse program, our volunteers help Veterans feel welcome and supported and ensure they have the best experience possible. Volunteers also help Saratoga WarHorse staff ensure that we can serve as many Veterans as possible.
