Growing leaders for the challenges of today

In the home, at school, and amongst each other, children are always learning and our programs aim to coax out their best.

​Leading For Change For Teens is designed to

1.    Increase their self-awareness and strengthen their reflection and renewal practices 

2.    Identify/refine their calling/purpose/personal vision and act on it

3.    Identify habitual behavioral patterns that impede their effectiveness 

4.    Recognize and use tension and disagreement to transform conflict into productive action


Our interactive, equine and nature assisted learning youth programs are specifically designed to ensure learning and retention of necessary life skills and promote personal growth. Our programs offer them an experience to refer to when they are faced with daily life choices. 


Leading For Change For Teens is a program that starts and ends with the program facilitators and the horses at First Nature Ranch, and then weekly virtual group coaching sessions in between. Some of our other youth programs start with a half-day introductory session and thereafter usually range between 4 - 6 sessions. This allows our facilitators to ensure the effectiveness of the course for the youth and the youth’s advancement in the program.


Horses and nature are ideal educational tools for use with teens and children. Once a youth is taught the basics of dealing properly with a horse, he or she can become the leader the horse seeks. When the horse feels safe, at peace, and being led by someone with confidence and a strong vision, the horse willingly cooperates. The process of learning to lead is life-changing for the youth.
