Map and Directions

Detroit Horse Power uses the power of horses to expand opportunities for Detroit's youth. The organization teaches urban youth to ride and care for horses as a way to develop critical skills that will set them up for future success. Their planned urban equestrian center will be built on repurposed vacant land in Detroit and offer year-round youth programming while supporting a stronger community.

We will help Detroit Horse Power prepare for their summer riding camps for Detroit youth by organizing, taking inventory, and re-packing equipment that has been donated to the organization. The inventory is stored in the home of the executive director, so we'll be working in a residential area in southwest Detroit. Street parking is available and there are no age limits. Feel free to bring friends and dress casually.
