The Full Time Experience

Doing Life Together

Working at Teen Ranch is more than just a job. Teen Ranch has a community of around 25 full time staff who live and work together. Jesus shapes men and women as they "do life" with Him - it is a truly whole-of-life apprenticeship with the best Master of all. Here at Teen Ranch, we have tried to imitate Jesus in the way He trains His followers - we want to "do life" together in such a way that we are transformed to be more like Him. 

Residential community, ordinary work, one-on-one mentoring, vocational experience, bible studies and practical mission provide many of the elements that will shape us as disciples of Jesus.

As part of a 2 year traineeship, trainees can complete a Certificate III in Outdoor Leadership or Hospitality. Full time staff also regularly complete Bronze Medallion and First Aid courses.
