Ranch Hands

Time to put on those leather gloves and get to work for the Ranch.  Spend the day as a volunteer around campus – mend a few fences, help cut the grass, or spend some quality time with our Ranchers on a trail ride.  To become a Ranch Hand, give us a call at (870) 793-6841 or send an email with your interest.

tutor typing


Excel in math, science, English, literature, etc.?  Many Ranchers attend tutoring sessions each afternoon following school to sharpen their knowledge of core subjects in grades 5-12.  Join us as a volunteer tutor to help our kids prepare for a successful future.  Please contact Philip Ives – (870) 793-6841 – to sign up today.

Additional Opportunities

There are many ways to volunteer around the Ranch. If you own a business offering services, donate your time and talent. Offer to mentor a Rancher. Lead a summer workshop to demonstrate and teach Ranchers a new skill or hobby. Assist our development team with fundraising, special events, writing, social media, or marketing efforts. Host a birthday party or other event in honor of the Ranch as a small fundraiser. Organize a volunteer effort at your company or church, like a bake sale or denim day. You can file documents or make copies.

The sky’s the limit! We need your help to improve the lives of Ranchers who call the Arkansas Sheriff’s Youth Ranch home.

Please volunteer. Give us a call (870) 793-6841 or contact us online.
