‘Cowboy Ethics’ training program coming to Riverton, free to educators

    (Riverton, WY) – Learn the “Cowboy Way” at a free Cowboy Ethics training to be held in Riverton on Saturday, October 23rd, at the Rendezvous Elementary School located at 413 North 4th Street.

    This training is geared toward teachers and other youth development professionals.

    The “Be Somebody: Cowboy Ethics” program can help inspire and lead youth to become stronger citizens with stronger character using the American cowboy and the Code of the West as inspirational themes.

    The Cowboy Ethics program has helped thousands of students set clear goals and reach for the best in themselves.


    The results can be seen in measurably improved GPAs, the transformations reported by teachers and youth group leaders, and how students themselves say they’ve changed.

    This free training for the first 25 registrants, a $350 value, is generously sponsored by the John P. Ellbogen Foundation.

    For out-of-town guests, The Ellbogen Foundation is also providing free hotel rooms in Riverton the night before (Oct. 22).

    Lunch is included during the training, and participants can receive a .5 PTSB credit.


    Training includes an 8-hour group training session, along with curricula for each participant, and three years of follow-up assistance, curriculum updates, and monthly newsletters. 

    “If there’s one thing we can all agree upon… it’s that we need to do something to help kids in our communities reach their full potential,” said Jim Owen, Founder of the Center For Cowboy Ethics & Leadership.

    To register for the training, please contact Sara Beth Lyon, Cowboy Ethics Outreach Coordinator, at (307) 265-2427; or via email at: [email protected].


    You may also register online here, and the registration deadline is Friday, Oct. 15th, 2021.
