What Is Rancho Cielo?
To transform the lives of at-risk youth and empower them to become accountable, competent, productive and responsible citizens.
Founder former Superior Court Judge John M. Phillips
witnessed the tragic cycle of offending and incarceration
that many young people found themselves in. He wanted to
create an effective alternative that would help keep first
offenders from becoming repeat offenders.
Rancho Cielo will continue to develop
and expand the use of the one-hundred acre site
to include an array of healthy, enriching activities
for all Monterey County at-risk youth and their families.
