WHAT IS DREAMERS' RANCH?
Dreamers’ Ranch, located on what many fondly remember as being the old Taylor Farm, is now once again a working farm with cattle, sheep, chickens, and a community garden. At the Ranch, students join mentors to farm, engage in developmental games and activities, and study various curricula geared towards their specific needs and our mission. Our faith-based curriculum focuses on identity, vision, purpose, leadership and entrepreneurship. It is our goal to inspire our students to dream and to give them the tools they need to step out and make those dreams a reality- positively impacting their communities and world. We welcome people and families of all ages, but the majority of our programming is geared towards youth ages 12-18.
Established in 2017, Dreamers' Ranch Mentoring Program was created as a response to the growing needs of young people in Southern, NH and the Greater Boston area. In conjunction with our mentoring program, we utilize our dynamic and therapeutic resources of farming, camps, and outdoor adventure to counteract prevalent threats to the health of our communities and society. These include, but are not limited to, the opioid crisis, domestic violence, human trafficking, anxiety, depression, suicide, social media addiction, and other crippling issues that our youth are faced with today.
Our students come from a variety of areas, including Windham, Derry, Salem and Manchester New Hampshire; and Lawrence, Haverhill, and Boston Massachusetts.
