2BU Youth Ranch

We work with at risk youth. Ages 8 - to 17 Youth are mentored one on one with one horse. The youth come for 90 minutes sessions in which they learn Basic Horsemanship starting with catching up to and through safe riding and handling. They are also required to complete a ranch chore during their 90 minute session

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Whether it is a movement or control of the horse, or how it relates to them and their life. It is a feel of accomplishment that we strive for with our youth that come to 2BU Youth Ranch. To mentor them through a tough time, emotion or just the right feel of the horse is something we take very seriously. If course fun is included and lots of love.
We try very hard to show them that God's unconditional love and understanding really does exist and that they have access to it. Hopefully this will lead to the important conversations. Such as Gods love for them, why they are here and how we can help.

The horse is how we get there. We spent 90 minutes once a week one on one with the youth and a horse. We teach basic Horsemanship in a safe manner. Starting with catching the horse and working up to riding with control. These actions teach creative problem solving, conflict management and improved communication skills. ( After all you need all of this to handle a 1200 pound animal.) We also throw in ranch hand chores which teach the youth the responsibility of taking care of the animal and the facility. Brushing and caring for the horse also teaches youth compassion.

2BU Youth Ranch recruits volunteers with good safe horsemanship skills to mentor the youth. They all have compassion and love for the youth I our community. We also have youth counselors that partner with us, by consultation or hands on working with the youth themselves.
We keep our facility in a neat, orderly and safe condition.

We have seen families reconnect, ADHD youth improve in their problem solving and their grades shoot up to straight A's. Families have reconnected with us 3 to 4 years after participating to tell us how their youths lives have continued in positive directions.

2BU has the ability to grow and have a bigger impact in the community. We would like to build a bigger volunteer base to work with. It is imperative for us to have enough qualified mentors for us to engage more families.
