Hello, my name is Aaron Ernst and I am the Director of Crown Valley Youth Ranch.
I have had the awesome opportunity of working with young people for the past 20 years. I would love to share my passion for helping youth, and I encourage you to visit anytime. But in a nutshell, youth are amazing! What I have discovered over the years is that you can learn a lot by simply listening to what each child is saying and their unique way of expressing it! Behind the expression is always a reason for their actions, though at times it may not be a good reason or even a rational one. But the fact remains. . . there is reason. God has given me an obsession in discovering these reasons, followed by the understanding in how to process these thoughts with youth. Youth are so raw in the way they express themselves. So much is being thrown at them in today’s culture and yet most of them survive. But here at Crown Valley the result of simply surviving is not good enough. We desire youth to thrive… not just survive. Here at the ranch, we encourage youth to look at all the possibilities, and we give them tools to help them embrace life and its changes, both past, present and future.
We look forward in serving your family,

Construction Project: Town Hall
This summer we will be remolding the Town Hall, which means the only things that wont be changing is the frame! The Town Hall will be our main attraction on the ranch. The staff at CVYR are hoping to use the Town Hall as a fun and safe space for the kids. It will be filled with games and lounging areas to provide a comfortable atmosphere to enable bonding between the mentor and the mentored. The environment of the Town Hall will make it easier to break down the walls that our kids come here with. Join the cause in making this happen by becoming a volunteer! Simply fill out the volunteer form and expect to be contacted shortly after. We pray that we see you soon!
