Life restoration for young men in crisis on a working ranch in Etna, CA

Live on a farm.
Build community.
Change lives.

Spend 9 months at the ranch living the Gospel in a tangible way.


Program Lead Interns help young men overcome crisis.

Think of it as a cross between a youth pastor and a resident advisor. Program leads live in the student house and build community while farming and adventuring outdoors.

Live on a Farm.
Build Community.

Change Lives.


Jump in to help with chores, gardening, and farm projects.

Farming isn’t the main focus of the internship, but you'll spend time cultivating a rare physical connection to life and land during your time at the ranch. 


Teach life skills and job skills to students through a wide variety of workshop and discussion based class times. Spend time reading the Bible together, leading discussion on goal-setting, or teaching how to write a resume. You will help pass on the skills that our students need to thrive in work and life.


Outside magazine said it best when it called Etna, CA “the Golden State’s last best place” [read more].

You’ll lead students on unforgettable adventures through the woods, down the river, and up the mountains of far Northern California.

This time-warp ranch town in the Scott River watershed is one of the last untrammeled outposts of wild California—a well-situated launching point for backcountry rambles on foot or on water. Think Yellowstone minus the gridlock. The Klamath National Forest and the Marble Mountain, Russian, and Trinity Alps wilderness areas are rich with snowcapped peaks, trout streams, and undammed snowmelt rivers with long, plunging rapids and boulder gardens. There’s backcountry snowboarding off Etna and Callahan summits, downhill skiing at nearby Mount Shasta, granite climbing routes at Castle Crags State Park, and, about ten miles away, the Pacific Crest Trail.
