INSPIRING THE NEXT GENERATION TOWARD HOPE
Bright Side Youth Ranch exists to inspire the next generation toward hope. At the heart of that mission is the Session Program.
During the 60 minute, individualized session, we seek to introduce children in crisis to the Author of Hope and help them take steps forward in personal growth. Because we work with One Child, One Mentor, and One Horse, each child gets a private and focused time that is suited to facilitate their unique situation.
Connecting One Child with One Horse and One Mentor helps the child develop MENTALLY through problem solving, PHYSICALLY through ranch chores and exercise outdoors, SPIRITUALLY through conversations about God and faith, SOCIALLY through a relationship with a trusted mentor, and EMOTIONALLY through empathy and a connection with a horse.
Since we started sessions in the fall of 2015, we have held 140 sessions and reached over 40 participants. We now have 3 mentors and 5 horses and look forward to increasing the number of sessions and participants for 2017.
