I cannot thank Molalla Communications enough for selecting me for this trip. It was a fantastic learning experience and I will never forget it. Overall, it was the greatest week of my life. Kids from across the country came as strangers and left as friends and will forever be connected because of the FRS Youth Tour.”

Youth Outreach

The Foundation is committed to providing the same opportunities for rural youth as those afforded to students in more urban areas. We know that the future of rural America depends on young people who want to stay in their community and help it grow. However, young people will not stay in rural communities if they do not have the opportunities for education and employment that they need. To that end, we provide funds for higher education, opportunities for knowledge and growth, and resources to achieve success.
