In the hills outside of La Honda, California there’s an alternative juvenile probation program run by the city of San Francisco. It’s called Log Cabin Ranch, and the mission is to keep young men out of the more punitive detention programs by incarcerating them in a rural setting and providing them with a 6-9 month program of counseling, education, and vocational training. For a series we’re calling “Listen In at Log Cabin Ranch” We gave some of the young men microphones, and asked them to take us into their lives. Listen below to hear the stories of D, Franklin, AJ, Chino, and Chuc.

"Listen In at Log Cabin Ranch" was produced for New America Now by Lisa Morehouse, with support from Will Roy and The Beat Within. The program was funded by the Zellerbach Family Foundation and the City of San Francisco Probation department.
