Greenway Ambassadors:Greenway Ambassadors.jpg

The variety of Greenway volunteer opportunities gives volunteers the ability to find the perfect fit for any schedule or skill set. Greenway ambassadors engage in community outreach to recruit and inform potential volunteers by attending public events. While encouraging community members to participate in volunteer activities, ambassadors will collect prospective volunteer contact information, provide access to the volunteer application process, and conduct follow-up contact with the Volunteer Coordinator after event coverage.

With over 2,100 acres of land and 40 miles of trails, there is always a new adventure to be had on the Greenway! We have an assortment of events ranging from the Fiddle ‘N Pig BBQ Festival and Summer Concert Series to our horse shows and Earth Day Celebration. We are looking for volunteers to help these events run smoothly. Come and enjoy what we have to offer while skipping the event fee, getting involved and giving back to your community!

Do you like getting outside? Are you interested in learning more about nature? Do you have an interest in education? Come support our mission to provide stewardship and protect the cultural, ecological and scenic features of the land, while offering recreational and education opportunities that promote the health and wellness of the community. Natural education volunteer jobs include hike leaders/assistants, cabin docents, story readers and many more!

The Exceptional Equestrians Program began in the late 1970s to serve area children and adults with special needs. Ms. Anne Springs Close began a partnership with the Rock Hill Parks & Recreation department and began offering therapeutic riding for children and adults with disabilities. 

Both fall and springs sessions last for six weeks. No horse experience is necessary, though it helps to be comfortable around horses. You can volunteer directly with the riders as a side walker or leader, or you can choose to volunteer as an artist. The captured photos of the riders are transformed into artwork that the riders can take home. Click here for more artist information
