Binghamton University honors students are dedicating their time to help out an organization that uses horseback riding as therapy.
PricewaterhouseCoopers or PWC Scholars are students in the School of Management’s honors program.
Each year, they take on a different community service project.
This week, they are renovating both indoor and outdoor areas of Kali’s Klubhouse in Apalachin.
Kali’s Klubhouse is a non-profit that provides equine or horse-assisted therapy for children with disabilities, at-risk youth, veterans and elderly people.
PwC Scholars Program President Victoria Wong says it’s been great working with an organization that helps so many. “I think it’s really fulfilling. I think it’s amazing all that the school’s program does. From start to finish we’ve fundraised around 18 thousand dollars with fundraisers that we’ve created as a group of college students. Together through that entire process, we were able to fund a huge community service project.”
Since the beginning of the school year the scholars have worked with Kali’s Klubhouse to digitize their volunteer database and integrating it into a scheduling tool to help them manage shift staffing.
They are also creating an informational guide about vocational school and college options for students in the organization’s programs.
