What is AntFarm?

AntFarm became a non-profit organization in 1997 with a dedication to help youth and families develop health, happiness, and a deeper sense of hope through meaningful, purposeful and enjoyable life activities. For over 16 years we have supported youth in being stronger individuals whom are civic minded. We believe to strengthen the character and integrity of youth will support our community. Our programs have evolved from need and have now proven successful. We have indoor classrooms and outdoor classrooms of experience. Homework, hiking, artistry, baking bread, building trails, gardening… these are a few of the activities we do.

AntFarm is built on community collaboration with no barriers. We work together to help in whatever way we can. It has been an amazing experience to witness young and old work together to help each other. Whether it is through CommunityConnect and helping senior citizens or growing food in the garden and distributing tons of food to those in need, AntFarm is consistent in helping with a smile and respecting all.

Our programs have evolved from hard work and with community support to make positive impact to our youth, families and community. There is no single factor that creates success at AntFarm; rather it is everyone working together to accomplish our goals. We continue to be thankful for the hundreds of hours of volunteer support, the amazing depth in the developing relationships, and the selfless service in helping others.


We have a team of AntFarm YouthCore still up at Timberline doing a restoration and building a trail AND we have Mt Hood SkiBowl applications here for the winter season!!! AntFarm has employed over 200 young people since July of 2010 and by this time next year we will be close to 300. Not only are we employing but others are coming to us looking for good employees. GO YOUNG PEOPLE OF SANDY! So, come on in, fill out a SkiBowl and AntFarm application, join our Jobs Club on Wednesdays from 3:30pm - 5:00pm and lets get more folks employed! (2 photos) ...
