Young Professional Board

Our Young Professional Board puts our values of diversity, community, inclusion and advocacy into action.

The TTR Young Professional Board is a group of neurodiverse young adults in the Denver metro area who are committed to raising community awareness and advancing the mission of Tall Tales Ranch. We work with others who want to help us make an impact in the community, all while learning new professional skills and having a whole bunch of fun. We are currently full; please check back in June of 2021 if you are interested in joining our board.

If you would like to learn more or have any questions, please email Sally McCance with your name and contact information at
