Welcome to Rough River Youth Development!!!

Rough River Youth Development (RRYD) is a Christian  Organization with  a strong desire of helping today's youth through our boarding school, Rough River Youth Ranch, for boys ages 10 to 17.

We are dedicated to helping these young men grow spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically healthy. Our hope is that by offering a Christian education and home we are creating Godly structure in the lives of these young men, so they might go on to serve Christ and succeed in life.  Our residents can expect to meet other young men from across the United States, as well as other countries.

Please take a few minutes to look at our pictures and read more about the mission and vision of Rough River Youth Development.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Thank you for visiting our site!

Coffee Break

A radio program sponsored and run by the Rough River Youth Development with the assistance of the Youth Pastor with G1 Ministries.  On this program we focus on many different concerns that our teenagers and upcoming generations deal with.  And we look at them from God's perspective through the Bible.  Filled with coffee and insight from the Holy Spirit, we pray you will find full inspiration from the broadcast.  So sit back take a sip, and enjoy.
