YES transforms the lives of Yamhill County children through literacy and music enrichment without regard to the child’s religion, race, ethnicity, language, citizenship, gender status, or ability to pay.
Books and music inspire the spirit and feed the soul. In partnership with the community and proven programs, YES provides access to inclusive literacy and music programs that help children dream more, learn more and be more. Bounty of Yamhill County is the primary fundraiser to support our amazing programs.

Since 2013, YES has collaborated with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.Through this program, all Yamhill County children ages 0-5 can register to receive a free age-appropriate book in the mail every month. The cost to YES is only $25 per year per child! As of May 2021, there are almost 2,800 children enrolled.
Since 2017, JOY has been devoted to creating access to music and strings education to youth in Yamhill County. Working with the school district, we provide In-School Violin education for Kindergarten and First Grade. In Second Grade, students continue in our After-School Orchestra with the choice of violin, viola, or cello. We plan to continue the After-School Orchestra through Fifth Grade to prepare our students to join the middle school orchestra program. As of April 2020, we serve 225 K-2 students at Edwards Elementary in Newberg, Oregon. We project to have around 260 students involved with JOY in the 2020-2021 school year serving grades K-3.
