Pictures and details coming soon on our best 'Palooza yet.

It's also not to early to think about donating your dress after
the prom for next year's Prom-A-Palooza!
What would you say are the most important skills children learn today? Reading? Math? Science? While these are essential, there are other abilities just as important abilities like problem solving, cooperation with others, communication, perseverance, and leadership ensure success in the real world, also.

Free outreach (no income guidelines)

2011 Prom-A-Palooza

Would you like to donate?
Our dress inventory is getting really low. Please consider donating any prom dresses that you may have. We are always looking for civic organizations or high school organizations to conduct dress drives to help us give the girls lots of options to choose from. Please contact Joyce Brown, if interested.

Challange Course Our challenge course is appropriate for ages Kindergarten through senior citizens, as most challenges can be adapted to the age and abilities of the participants.  So, not only will children and youth develop these important life skills, but our challenge course is a great way to get young people outside, away from TV and video games and explore/enjoy outdoor activities. Our motto is ‘No Child Left Inside’!

Bridge of Hope
Therapeutic Riding Center
Riding Center
Providing Opportunities for Identified 'At-Risk' Youth
Put the yellow ring on the blue pole, next put both arms out and find your balance, now use your reins to make Silverado go to the left of the orange cones” are examples of verbal instructions riders are asked to follow as they participate in the Bridge of Hope Riding Center.

"Learning to approach & groom a horse"
The riding center has recently begun its pilot program with two young boys from Osceola.  Each child rides for an hour then helps to unsaddle Silverado and groom him.  During the riding session, riders are asked to follow directions, stretch their bodies and minds, and in turn learn how to rein the horse, signal the horse when to go and stop, and learn to respect the volunteers and horse involved.

Who doesn’t love horses? Most kids and adults even if they don’t ride, still love these beautiful creatures!  Horses are perfect for teaching respect, patience, responsibility, and developing a sense of self-confidence.  volunteer training started in in March of 08 and continued through May.

The riding center is focusing on providing opportunities for identified ‘at-risk’ youth to develop job and life skills through a natural horsemanship environment.
