Kopper Top is a recreational therapy center located in Guilford County, NC. We specialize
in therapeutic horseback riding, inclusive day camp, animal-assisted therapy, horticulture
therapy, and many more opportunities for hands-on recreational therapy experience!
At Kopper Top, we work with people of all ages and abilities, giving you exposure
to various types of recreational experiences available in the field.
From teaching horseback riding to kids with Autism on one of our gentle
giants; to helping an elderly nursing home resident pet cats during a
therapy session; to encouraging a quadriplegic as he stands in the saddle, Kopper
Top is all about learning, educating, and doing your best!
Working closely with Deborah Meridith, LRT/CTRS, you will gain valuable knowledge
and life experiences as you follow her through her work day by day, using animals
to help people. As an intern, you are expected to participate in therapy sessions,
help plan and execute programs, care for the animals, work with the clients, record
and document progress notes, and much more!
We offer internships, practicums, and opportunities for service hours.
Our internship is a minimum of 15 weeks (600 hours). To apply, please
send resume and references to DeborahMeridith@Bellsouth.net. Please contact us for
more information regarding internship times, details, and opportunities.
Hearts are waiting for your help!
My mission in life is to go around and help others fulfill their destiny.
