The Mission

Sierra Nevada Teen Ranch is a local, nonprofit, faith-based Christian Organization that will serve Nevada’s at-risk youth. Our mission is to Rescue, Redeem, and Restore Young Lives.

Our varied programs combined with spiritual development will make an impact in our community that will save tax dollars, lower current and future juvenile justice caseloads, and increase a productive workforce.

We will provide programs and services to vulnerable youth between the ages of 9 and 17 in a family and relational environment that will reflect positive interaction and proper societal behaviors.

Sierra Nevada Teen Ranch brings a vision and message of hope. Education, life skills, and day-to-day living in a Christian family environment can break the vicious cycle that lands youth in juvenile justice centers.

Valley Teen Ranch: Model for Sierra Nevada Teen Ranch

Niko, 2013 Graduate from Valley Teen Ranch in Madera, CA
Being at VTR gave me strength to say “no” to my homeboys and to drugs. It also helped me to reconnect to my family. (Testimony from VTR, a partner, and model for SNTR: with 30 years of experience, they’ve provided valuable assistance from the-get go to our residential teen program.)
