Crown Valley Youth Ranch is a place for children to be mentored and learn important life skills. When you sign your child up with our ministry, they will be placed with a Session Leader that best fits them and their interests. Everything at CVYR is free of charge, as we are a non-profit ministry. Our programs include:

Horses & Horse Rescue



Small animals


  • During a session, mentors teach, encourage, and empower each student. This is achieved by “LISTENING”. We offer so much fun here at the ranch but this is only for the reason of creating an environment that earns trust. Each student has an opportunity to have a full 90-minute session here at the ranch.
  • The mentors will make a “Session Plan” based on the information first received by the parent interview and interest form. The first session will be an orientation which helps us become more familiar with the student and it allows the Session Leader to hang out and show you all of the possibilities the ranch has to offer.
  • After orientation, a customized plan will be developed by the Session Leader. They will use the interest request form, parent interview, and the orientation session as a starting point in the student’s plan development. After a plan has been made, it will be shared with the ranch director before finalizing the student’s plan.
  • At the end of each session, each mentor will follow up with an evaluation sheet. This will help understand if what we are doing is working. Also, any further information from the parent would be quite useful.


  • Parent, guardian, or sponsor must provide transportation to and from the ranch. Please be on time.

  • When a student arrives late it will take that time away. SESSIONS BEGIN PROMPTLY AT SCHEDULED TIMES. 

  • If you find that you must cancel your child’s session, please inform us as soon as possible. This will allow us to make room for another student who may be on our waiting list.  If a cancellation occurs, session cannot be rescheduled but will be continued at the next pre-scheduled date.

  • When you arrive at the ranch, please go to the main office and sign in at the front desk. Make yourselves comfortable. The mentor will be informed that you have arrived. When your student leaves for their session, feel free to relax in our parent lounge or take advantage of the time and run an errand. One little reminder: be back on time to pick them up. During the hours from 1 pm-5 pm Monday- Thursday, the session areas of the ranch are off limits to the public. This is to ensure the safety and privacy of your child.
