This is purely from a recent staff perspective, mostly for anyone planning on one day working at the facility. Here's some things you might want to know. I worked for Discovery Ranch for nearly a year. I saw the program change kids, and I felt a sense of fulfillment building relationships with the boys and watching them take their treatment and do something with it. I watched them grow and struggle, and sometimes I said bittersweet goodbyes as they headed home to start life again. It's a wonderful program that really has potential. It doesn't work for every boy-- but for those that find a desire to change somewhere along the road of treatment, it does a fantastic job. It's not an easy job for a staff. The emotional wear-and-tear is tough, but instead it's the few structural flaws in the system that make it difficult. Formal training for this job is non-existent. Anyone wanting to work here should know that. You are pointed this way and that with twenty-odd boys and no idea what the rules are, right off the bat, and you can bet the kids will take advantage of that-- and you'll be the one to blame if something goes wrong. It's horribly stressful, especially considering that you're in charge of a large group of boys and part of their treatment; the program brings in a lot of money, and upper management doesn't care to use it to train their staff. You'll have an informal and rushed meeting once every couple of months, about twenty minutes long and with a packet of papers to read. That's about it. Hands-on and in the moment is not good enough for the boys. There are virtually no opportunities for growth here. You may have a chance to become a supervisor, but most likely not. The turnover rate here is pretty high due to the pay and the lack of opportunities, so you're constantly having to adjust to new staff (who have also had zero training). It's not a perfect system, and it could easily be made better with a few tweaks, but... again, upper management is not too interested in their staff. (In short, don't expect them to work with you. They don't take staff opinions or ideas into account and usually ignore emails sent even with the best intentions.) Hopefully, with more information like this, those who run this program and make the decisions will take interest and be able to make changes that will improve the Ranch, the employees, and the boys' lives. In short: working with the boys is awesome and will change you. You'll be able to make a difference. It's not just a job-- it's a chance to grow and help youth that need it. However, working with the management is a difficulty and ultimately the reason I personally chose to leave. They have work to do if they hope to keep their good staff and help them help the kids.

I was a student at Discovery Ranch from 2008-2009 and it had the most profound impact on my life. My parents struggled for years working with therapists, programs and teachers trying to get me the help I needed, but nothing worked. It was an environment that made me want to progress in order to move out of orientation level which gave me very little privileges up to the higher levels so I could have free time with my friends. The staff and therapists VERY QUICKLY learned exactly how to motivate me in the right direction and work with me. I soon started to progress through the program and my staff and therapists and parents could see the revolutionary changes happening within me. My parents, family, and even myself would say that Discovery Ranch was, and is the most important event in my life, and I would NOT be where I am without them. The staff and therapists hold my highest respect. Because of the help I received at Discovery Ranch, I have graduated college with a BA in psychology and am now pursuing a PhD in psychology so that I can give back and help others like myself.
