What We Do
We serve 150 students daily between the ages of 16 and 24, from low income, at-risk backgrounds.

"To express yourself with words sometimes isn't enough but to tell it by moving your body is even more beautiful. It doesn't matter if you're happy, angry, or sad a picture paints a thousand words."
We’re Transforming Lives
Since 2000, Rancho Cielo has helped more than 1000 students become employed, productive citizens. In 2015 we awarded 48 High School diplomas, 22 Culinary certificates, and employed or sent to college 92% of those graduates.
