Each year, thousands of supporters come out to cheer on our young people at the annual Boys Ranch Rodeo +adventureFEST. This year we have some new experiences that will be intertwined into the day’s excitement. One of those is a silent auction.
Many of the pieces available to bid on were made by the boys and girls in our care through the various learning areas offered by our Experiential Learning Program. ELP is a vital program that helps our young people learn skills they’ll one day be able to use in future careers. The program also provides industry certifications for the skills they’re learning, which provides a huge stepping stone into a chosen career field once they leave our care.
Among the pieces built by our youth are birdhouses, a wooden bench, quote wood signs and some ceramic pieces.
Make sure to come and see more of the incredible pieces we’ll have to offer. And, while you’re there, we know you’ll enjoy the Boys Ranch Rodeo +adventureFEST!
