The other ways that our programs serve teenage boys is through –
Education and Vocation Training: Through our partnership with Premier High School, Miracle Farm offers each young man the opportunity to take ownership of their education. Staffed with highly qualified teachers, our students are able to earn their Texas high school diploma, as well as college credits through Blinn College.
Each weekday morning is spent in the classroom mastering the necessary skills to successfully graduate from high school. Each afternoon is spent in learning labs developing practical job skills such as: welding, construction science, farm and ranch maintenance, and horsemanship.
Horse Program: From his first day at Miracle Farm, each young man learns how to develop a healthy relationship with his horse. Caregiving tasks such as grooming, cleaning stalls, and feeding build the foundations of trust. Team roping teaches cooperation and teamwork as it instills a new sense of accomplishment and success.
As trust is built, the young man learns to work in tandem with their horse on the ground and on its back. This bond aids Miracle Farm staff in helping each young man apply those skills to their everyday life and to their relationships with their family, teachers, peers, and others.
