Jackson and Josephine Counties

The SMART Rogue Valley Area team implements SMART and raises funds to support SMART in Southern Oregon. In 2013-2014 in SMART’s Rogue Valley Area, we served 1,123 PreK through third-grade children with the help of 635 local volunteers. We are focused on recruiting more volunteers and establishing strong financial support among our communities to ensure we can continue this important work of empowering local children through reading.
