APPRENTICESHIP


THE PROGRAM: 

Our program provides an opportunity for young, passionate people looking to make ranching their livelihood. We focus on their development through a hands-on, learn-by-doing approach.  The apprentice is fully immersed in the day-to-day operation, working alongside full-time employees and exposed to the inner-workings of a progressive, multi-generational family ranch.  We hope to provide the opportunity for the apprentice to gain more knowledge, skills, and a broader perspective about ranching.

EXPECTATIONS:

We expect sincerity, gumption, hard work, open-mindedness, initiative, good communication, and the ability to take constructive criticism.  We expect apprentices to ask questions.  We provide an environment for apprentices to learn, grow, and gain experience; the amount of growth is determined by each apprentice.  Apprentices need prior significant ranch work and horsemanship experience, and are expected to commit at least 4 months.

INTERNSHIP


THE PROGRAM: 

We provide a rich life experience with the overriding purpose of bridging the gap between urban and rural communities.  Interns are immersed in the day-to-day operations of the ranch and become an integral part of the ranch community.  They have exposure to all different types of ranch work – and its realities – which often are difficult and mundane.  We view the program as learn-by-doing education, giving interns a unique opportunity to get an inside look and an inside experience to progressive ranching. It is also a great opportunity to work alongside the professionals who make ranching and conservation a successful venture.

EXPECTATIONS: 

We ask interns to commit at least 3 months of their time.  Interns must have the physical capabilities of conducting hard manual labor in difficult environments day-in and day-out.  Interns are expected to work alongside full-time employees and to pull their own weight.  They also must be open-minded, hard-working, sensible, and have a good attitude and the ability to receive guidance and constructive criticism well.
