CONSULTING

BOYS RANCH START-UP PROGRAMS

Here you can see an outline of the Boys Ranch Programs consulting manual. This includes most topics covered for the full program.

Consulting can be done on each topic as a stand-alone program if you are already running a Boys/girls Ranch Program and only need help in one or more topics and not the entire set-up Program.

The program manuals can be purchased excluding the personal consulting for a reduced price.

However: This is NOT recommended for the beginning of a new children’s program. The level system that I developed over many years is written to help you start your ranch program and make it a success in the beginning.

For information on cost, contact Dr. Rene’ Monroe using the above information. We will be adding online ordering and payment in the future.

The incentives for youth in the program are provided in a level system that approximates the natural community system. The amount and quality of the rewards and privileges are determined by the amount and quality of personal achievement and responsibility assumed by the individual.
