Schools in Southern Oregon and Northern California will benefit from an initiative launched by a number of Rogue Valley businesses. Steve Best has details about the project.

The initiative is called Youth Education Success – or “YES”, and is being launched by 5 local businesses, who will donate a portion of their earnings one day a month.

The funds will help with classroom supplies, extracurricular activities and programs at public schools in the region, who will be able to apply for grants of up to $2,500 per school.

The funds, which will be allocated in proportion to each county’s student population, will be handled by United Way of Jackson County.
