Why Work Here?

We serve at-risk youth in our community to break the cycle of fatherlessness

Youth Horizons is a 501c3 nonprofit, working to break the cycle of fatherlessness through mentoring and residential programs. Youth Horizons’ mentoring program helps youth grow to be confident, hopeful and productive citizens. We match youth from age 5 to 14 (at startup) with a positive Christian role model. Mentors commit to spend time with a child for a minimum of one year. Mentoring time is spent with a caring adult and includes academic advancement and development, life skill-building (sports, behavior, money management, etc.) and spiritual development (Bible study, prayer, church). Youth Horizons' residential program provides care for boys with severe individual and family challenges. In cases where living at home or in a foster home has been unsuccessful, Youth Horizons is equipped to help. Located on the outskirts of Wichita on North Woodlawn, the ranch serves boys ages 10-22. We have four family-style group homes that are fully operational, and have the capacity to care for up to 28 boys.
