Ride for Youth Fund

The Ride for Youth Fund, established by Apollo Farms Ltd. in Palmerton, PA, is focused on promoting a positive environment that encourages healing and growth for at-risk youth in Carbon County through the assistance of our Equine counterparts.  Ride for Youth is the only program of its kind in Carbon County, and extends a safe haven for at-risk youth, creating a positive environment for children struggling with serious issues that may affect their daily lives.  By using the horses and their unique model, the team at Ride for Youth gives children an opportunity to set clear boundaries while developing and discovering life management skills they can use every day. 

The Ride For Youth program works with Lehighton Middle and High School.  The at-risk youth that are most fragile are selected by the school guidance counselors to participate in the program.  These are children who need help working through depression, abuse, loss, bullying, and/or any debilitating issue.  Ride for Youth staff work directly with each child using the horses as role models and guides.  They utilize a non-riding model that is child-centered and solution-oriented.  All sessions are custom-designed for the specific needs of the children within the group.

Distributions for the Ride for Youth Fund provide scholarships that cover 100% of the costs associated with participating in a program at Apollo Farms Ltd., so there is absolutely no cost to the children or their families.
