Long-term Program & Reality Cowboy Therapy
Triangle Cross Ranch offers a strong educational program that includes academic curriculum, vocational and technical training for troubled boys. The combination of a working ranch environment, personal relationships with staff, teen residents, and expert life coach and mentorship, form the key to success. As a struggling boy turns away from problematic behavior, alcohol and drugs, he moves into a Christian, cowboy-influenced culture of truth, honesty and determination.
Many young men today suffer from a lack of responsibility. On the ranch, we assign chores based on each boy’s capabilities in the current season, and find a specific type of work to spark their interest. Chores, depending on season, include: horse care, feeding baby calves, participating in cattle drives, building fences, repairing and maintaining ranch vehicles and farm equipment.
By accepting these responsibilities, the troubled teen boys learn self-discipline. They quickly see that the work is necessary for the survival of the ranch, and they become part of something bigger than themselves. They also learn cooperation, which promotes self-esteem. Experiencing personal responsibility often motivates boys to complete their schoolwork—we call this Reality Cowboy Therapy.
