Founded in 1968, J Bar J Youth Services has been serving teens for over four decades. We started as a working ranch for boys and over the years, we have responded to the needs of youth in the community with a continuum of services. We believe in teaching kids how to take responsibility for their own thinking. We ask youth to be accountable for their actions and to recognize their thinking errors. Our goal is to see youth succeed as happy, healthy adults who contribute to their families and their community. We believe in the importance of each child, focusing on their strengths and building resilience. We are proud of the hard work they do while they are with us to change their behaviors.
What People Are Saying
As a leader, I often tell people that if I can help change the course of just one person’s life for the positive, then all my investment is worth it; that is what J Bar J has done for me.
Rick Z., former resident of the J Bar J Boys Ranch
