J BAR J BOYS RANCH VOCATIONAL PROGRAM

MISSION STATEMENT

Facilitating Positive Change for Youth

A residential treatment program for adjudicated teen boys, providing an opportunity to restructure thinking, succeed academically, and grow in responsibility. The newest initiative, a vocational program, is nearing completion. By providing vocational training in addition to a strong academic curriculum, the opportunity for gainful employment increases. Meaningful employment reduces the likelihood of engaging in criminal behavior and the training helps to build a workforce. Help boys who have made poor choices build a brighter future and become contributing members of the community. We are J Bar J Youth Services.

WHAT CAN YOUR DONATIONS DO?

The newest initiative, a vocation school for The Learning Center, which will be breaking ground soon on the Boys Ranch property. By provid- ing vocational training in addition to a strong academic curriculum, the opportunity for gainful employment increases. Meaningful employment reduces the likelihood of engaging in criminal behavior and the training helps to build a workforce. Because boys, students from low-income families, and those who have been in the juvenile justice system are shown to benefit most from strong vocational programs, this program is a natural fit. Your donation will help boys who have made poor choices build a brighter future and to become contributing members of the community.
