Are you Ready to Inspire a Change of Perspective?
When we asked the Meramec Adventure Learning Ranch team to tell us why they enjoy working for Meramec Adventure Learning Ranch, two common themes emerged:
The Kids and the Staff
Without fail, the employees pointed to helping children in trouble as their number one reason for choosing to work for Meramec Adventure Learning Ranch. They continue working for the organization because of the supportive and encouraging environment where co-workers move together toward the mutual goal of bettering the lives of kids.
"My kids trust and count on me and that’s what makes the difference for me!"
"I felt so honored to be working among so many people who are dedicated and passionate about putting kids first. The dedication and heartfelt caring is real and constant. That's what made me want to become a part of the Meramec Adventure Learning Ranch family, and I am very happy that I am."
“I always wanted to do missionary work. Due to certain family issues I was unable to…
So in short this is like my missionary work, my chance to give back.”
“I come to work everyday because of my kids. To hear them laugh and see them smile. Even though they have rough days I’m still patient and understanding because by the end of the day I know I will get a hug or a thank you from someone that truly means it because, they may not get that much care and patience at home.”
"What I love about working here is that I finally feel like I belong somewhere and found my purpose in life. I've struggled for a long time to find out what I'm good at and I feel like I found it. Working with today’s youth inspires me to come back every day and maybe one day I've changed a kid’s life in a small way."
"It’s not a place or name that makes a facility great it’s the people that are part of the organization. An organization is only as great as its people and here at Meramec Adventure Learning Ranch what makes our facility great is our people, their dedication, tenure, and unconditional support for children on a daily basis."
"Working for Meramec Adventure Learning Ranch, is a rewarding experience – whether it's the kids who touch your heart with their growth and success of their program, or working with dedicated staff. We're all in this together, as a team. Together achieving a successful program for these kids and families who need our love and support. I love having the opportunity to share what Meramec Adventure Learning Ranch is about, whether it's with family and friends, or especially to a stranger who has never been enlightened. I feel like I get to be a voice or advocate for not only our agency, but for the kids and families we serve, sharing who we are, and what we're all about. Kids First!"
