Founded in 1968, J Bar J Youth Services has been serving teens for over four decades. We started as a working ranch for boys and over the years, we have responded to the needs of youth in the community with a continuum of services. We believe in teaching kids how to take responsibility for their own thinking. We ask youth to be accountable for their actions and to recognize their thinking errors. Our goal is to see youth succeed as happy, healthy adults who contribute to their families and their community. We believe in the importance of each child, focusing on their strengths and building resilience. We are proud of the hard work they do while they are with us to change their behaviors.
Our programs include:
J Bar J Youth Services hosts the Oregon High Desert Classics, a two week hunter/jumper competition at the end of July every year. All proceeds from this event support youth in our programs. To become a sponsor or learn how to register for the event, please visit Oregon High Desert Classics.
