Were you one of the many who found hope and direction thanks to the Idaho Youth Ranch? If so, you are part of a very special family. And we’re inviting you to reconnect with that family via the Idaho Youth Ranch Alumni Association.

Here for you

The Alumni Association is open to everyone who has ever participated in any Idaho Youth Ranch program since 1953. Whether you completed services or not, whether you spent a weekend at Hays, three months in counseling, a phase in YOUTHWORKS!, or two years at the Ranch—you qualify as an Idaho Youth Ranch “alum” and are welcome to join us. We'd love to hear from you!

Here for each other

Remember other kids who were in the program with you? Then you know those shared experiences can create bonds as strong as the bonds between brothers and sisters. As an Idaho Youth Ranch alum, the knowledge and insight that can only come from having been there makes you an invaluable role model/mentor for kids now in care and for other Idaho Youth Ranch alums. Alumni Association members also have the background to help us continually improve our services.

Finishing the Job : Alumni Support

Idaho Youth Ranch's alumni coming together to create a community of continued support.

Courageous transformations happen over time, and there could be set backs and new challenges. The Alumni Association brings graduates of IYR together to create a family and a community to provide support to new graduates. The alumni association also continues the relationship with Idaho Youth Ranch and continues to share the way their lives continue to improve using the skills they learned at their time with the Idaho Youth Ranch.
