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 fences, help mow the grass, or spend 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 a specific academic area and enjoy working with children struggling academically? 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 kids prepare for a successful future.  (870) 793-6841 – to sign up today.

Special events

We host special events on campus and in the community to build awareness of the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranches and to raise financial support. Some of our events include the Farm Safety Expo, the Youth Ranches’ Pumpkin Patch, and our annual Children’s Award dinner. If you love planning events, leading volunteers from your church/organization to help the Ranch, decorating for events, or participating at the event in a variety of helpful, hands-on ways, contact the Ranch here.

Additional Opportunities for Volunteers

If you are willing to serve, you can! 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 planning and marketing efforts. Host a birthday party or small fundraiser in honor of the Ranch. Organize a volunteer effort at your company or church, like a bake sale, chili supper, or denim day.

The sky’s the limit! Help us improve the lives of Ranchers who call the Arkansas Sheriff’s Youth Ranch home by volunteering.
