Bens Ranch Foundation Teen Evaluators, Trainers, Helpers and Mentors

3/2/24 +
Flexible

Bens Ranch Foundation small group assessments, training sessions and small group programs require volunteers who commit to provide supervision and assistance at programs in their area. This is a hands-on role working directly with our young applicants and participants. These roles require participation for several hours on one day--typically Saturdays--or to a program with several pre-set dates. Volunteers may serve at as many sessions as their schedules allow. Some brief training is required, but no license or credentials are required. Experience in education, equine therapy, social work, youth programming, or farm and livestock operations is especially helpful. Mentors agree to work along side an intern or intern candidate during training, trial work sessions at a prospective host-employer site and during an internship. They provide emotional support, assistance and guidance for interns who may need assistance as they learn a new role in a new environment.

With the support of partnering churches, Love INC began providing housing for families through the “Homes from the Heart” program in January, 2022. A second apartment became available in March, and was immediately put to use. Families in the program receive free rent and utilities for a period of 3 months. During that time, they work with Love INC staff and church volunteers to develop financial and life goals and to create a plan to begin moving toward fulfillment of those goals. Love INC staff monitors their progress and may grant extensions at their discretion. Families attend weekly classes at Love INC, including Affirming Potential, Boundaries, and Faith and Finances. Their children also benefit, by participating in enrichment programs of their own. With this 2-generation, individualized approach, Love INC hopes to tackle the problem of generational poverty and help these families have hope for a better future.
