Equine Therapy at Platte Valley

Horse 3 (1) (1).jpg

Several of the youth at Platte Valley Youth Services Center had an incredible opportunity to be a part of a newly developed equine therapy program last week. The youth involved were able to interact closely with the horses and spend the afternoon learning about boundaries and spacial respect. One of the youths commented that “I learned patience with stubborn horses. I feel at peace with my life when petting the thick coat of the horses. I also learned that you have to observe and use boundaries with the horses.”

The honorable judges at Weld County Judicial District 6 were treated to a lunch prepared by the youth in the culinary catering program at Platte Valley Youth Services Center last week. The youth were able to apply what they learned through the programs grocery store and budgeting curriculum to feed approximately 20 people for 80 dollars. After creating a shopping list for the event, the youth learned how to cost out the plates per person. The project was facilitated by Dustin Tallman, who introduced the youth to budget and plate costing; giving them a basis of knowledge to build from in their futures, either in the restaurant business or providing and feeding a family meal in their homes.
