BPR PROGRAMS

A COMMITMENT TO INCLUSIVENESS

Our mission is grounded in our commitment to impact the lives of youth regardless of race, gender, socioeconomic status, faith or politics.  The goal will always be the same -  to help them become independent, resilient, mentally tough critical thinkers.  


COLLABORATIVE PARTNERS

The Bony Pony Ranch Foundation works with a network of carefully chosen collaborative partners to reach and impact their target demographic – at risk youth from 10-18 years old (basically middle school to high school). These are partners who already have a track record of working within our target communities and a history of success. We are adding a valuable component to their already existing program - social reinforcement. Customized group activities focused on life skills, critical thinking role play, experiential outings and structured interactive discussions to encourage identification of challenges and solutions.  


CURRENT COLLABORATIVE PARTNERS INCLUDE - 

Falcons Youth and Family Services | Los Angeles     

RED  Rehabilitation Enables Dreams, Atlanta | Georgia         

Fostering a Change, Studio City | California


BPR SESSIONS

Each BPR session will span 6-10 weeks and will be crafted to dovetail with the collaborative partner’s existing programs. Our goal is to impact at least 500 youth in the first year. Stand-alone programs include “Ranch Round Up” Sessions focused on exploring issues related to negative generational patterns, mental health, sexuality, substance abuse, health and wellness in small group settings. As needs are identified, customized stand-alone programs and components that align with our mission and objectives will be developed.

The BPR Foundation will provide funding and tangible resources (workshops, hands on skill building activities) to collaborative nonprofit partners and directly.


BPR MENTORSHIPS

This component draws upon the rich legacy of Dr. Frank Ryan. We will draw upon our relationships in the business, philanthropic and entertainment industries to pair mentors with youth who would benefit from one on one interaction with someone who they look up to and can relate to.
