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,

“Kids matter greatly to God. At CVYR we have seen God work in ways we’ve never imagined. What an honor to be a part of His kingdom, so help us keep it going.
Stop? Scale back? That sounds easy, until you have to tell that face-to-face to a child you have been mentoring for a year. A child that sees their time at the ranch, and you, as the highlight of their week, and they see you as a some kind of friend or superhero.
The truth is all you are is doing is praying God will soften their heart and give you the words. A child you see as your child. Could you imagine telling that child we are stopping? Me neither.”
