Building Skills Transforming Lives


Monterey County Gives!

Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 11:45am

Rancho Cielo offers an alternative educational environment, with vocational training, life skills development and counseling services. In addition to the successful vocational programs already on campus, like culinary and construction academies, our non-profit’s Big Idea is the brand-new auto/diesel repair program. The Auto/Diesel Repair Program teaches students how to inspect and repair vehicles, especially tractors and agricultural equipment. These in-demand skills, paired with the safe and affirming environment of Rancho Cielo, set these students up for lifelong success and meaningful work.

Thanks to your financial support you will help our students receive the following benefits:

  • Supportive services: uniforms where required; referrals to outside resources, such as behavioral health, healthcare, and basic needs.
  • Transportation
  • Personalized Individual Development Plan with Case Manager.
  • Job Readiness activities
  • Case Manager to assist with College Preparedness activities, including:
    • Complete financial aid application (FAFSA)
    • Financial literacy
    • Arrange a meeting with a college counselor for Ed plan
    • Job referrals
  • High School Diploma in a small classroom setting with individualized instruction. Rapid credit recovery.

We are excited to participate in the 2021 Monterey County Gives! campaign. Your year-end gift goes further through the pro-rata match each gift receives.

Your support can help make a difference in countless lives of the youth in our community. This year’s program runs from November 11th through midnight on December 31, 2021.
