Volunteer In A Unique Catholic Residential Therapeutic Boarding School Program Setting
The Mentor must possess high moral and ethical standards with a strong Christian/Catholic background. They must live with the at-risk youth, monitor their activities, and maintain harmony through good examples and relationships. This allows opportunities to share Triangle Cross Ranch Christian philosophies with youth and find the goodness within while providing direction in returning home.

Ranch hand labor such as irrigation, fence building/repair, carpentry, large animal care, driving heavy equipment and late hours are all part of the ranch life.

The Mentor needs to be a strong person that will not be easily manipulated by the boys, yet has empathy for each boy’s situation. The Mentor will maintain a written log of daily activities accounting for each boy’s attitude inside and outside.
The Mentor is responsible to ensure that all meals are nutritious and follow proper food handling procedures. Provide a family dining atmosphere when possible, using proper table manners, and cleaning up after meals.
