mohss Junior board and junior committee

How to be a Jr. Board member


Any MOHSS member that is in 8th grade or above can be assigned a leadership position on the MOHSS Junior Board.  Being a board member would mean that you are taking on a major role with our Community Service, MOHSS support, and mentorship of younger members (10 and under and disabled riders), and mentoring the JR Committee members in their leadership development.

How to be a committee member


Any MOHSS member that is in the 5th grade or above can be assigned a position in the MOHSS JR Committee.  High School/College level members can also have the option to serve on the JR Committee instead of the JR Board.  Your main duties will be to work as ring crew during part of the show days and to support our charities each month.  You may also work with JR Board Members with their charity month duties prior to the show. 

Benefits to you


  • Charity & Service opportunities are a wonderful way for you to give back and make a difference in the world.
  • Awesome experience!  You are on the ground floor of something new and exciting and you have an opportunity to shape it and help it grow.
  • You will be publicly recognized for your efforts at the end of the season. 
  • Great way to build your resume for work and college!  You have adults involved that know you and care about you.  We will be there to write your letters of recommendation and document your accomplishments.
