Apps Your Teens & Tweens Love

Parental involvement helps ensure a positive and safe experience
Navigating the adolescent years with your teen is tough. From friendships to school and social activities, discerning what's age-appropriate versus downright unsafe for your kids is difficult.

Support for a Better Community

J Bar J's programs lift up families and youth in Central Oregon
In 1968, Lyle Jarvis and Bill Jones realized there was a need in the Central Oregon community for a rehabilitation center specifically for boys. They got together and founded J Bar J, a live-in ranch for teenage boys who were considered troubled or on the road to jail.

Blazing Global Trails

Study abroad students and host families choose the road less traveled
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. — Robert Frost

Holiday Baking with Kids

Simple Recipes + Imagination = Fun Memories
Whether holiday baking is a family tradition for your clan or not, these simple recipes and tips are designed to inspire even those who have never dared anything homemade or sprinkled a single Christmas cookie!

Reaching Out

Five nonprofits to support this holiday season
While the holidays can be a time of excess (food, gifts or money spent), that excess can also be a time to remind us of how fortunate we are to have that opportunity. Helping out a charity, through time spent volunteering, giving a cash donation or a donation of food/items can be a great way to get people, especially kids, thinking about how important it is to give back to the community.
