New Horizons Boys Ranch endeavors to encourage academic, emotional, spiritual, and physical fitness by instilling discipline and mentoring them to rebuild relationships. Teens arrive at New Horizons Boys Ranch from across the nation, including from Anchorage, Alaska, and often find it constructive to grow in a new environment separate from local peer groups.
New Horizons Boys Ranch is a faith-based residential program focused on character maturity and family renewal. We provide services to 20 boys in a home-like environment in which struggling adolescents adopt better life attitudes, grow in their faith, find a safe and nurturing environment, and conquer their challenges and problems. We offset hard work with engaging recreation such as fishing, hiking, horseback riding, hunting and swimming. Our picturesque mountainous location is a great place for backpacking, camping and hiking.
Every child begins by forming trust with an adult mentor. Strenuous activities and daily chores contribute to a strong work ethic and many other positive character qualities. Then, in context of a relationship with a mentor, the adolescent can work through the destructive choices that had held him or her back. We also offer individual and group counseling to improve attitudes and behaviors.
Residents at New Horizons Boys Ranch are provided a fully accredited school that also offers independent study courses. All credits earned transfer easily to any other school. The self-paced nature of the coursework suits our students well, allowing them to learn in the way they find best and catch up on any missed credits. We believe discipline plays a key role in any worthwhile education, and we convey this in our classroom. Additionally, vocational training topics include automotive, construction, culinary, life skills, and ranching.
Genuine family restoration takes place only with the close involvement of parents. We require parents to attend three family workshops each year for coaching, family therapy and to visit their child at our facility. We facilitate frequent contact between parents and teens using tools such as letter writing, which strengthens communication and relationship building without the emotional charge of face-to-face contact.
NHBR is a faith-based program that guides adolescents to find their place in life. Through mentorship, counseling, hard work and plenty of play, we teach values and character traits that will be profitable for your child for the rest of his or her life. Please consider looking outside of Anchorage, Alaska to see how our caring program can bring about restoration in your family.
