Orange County, California is home to a number of organizations that are dedicated to helping young people reach their full potential. Tony, a local resident, saw the need for an independent organization that could provide these services to the youth of Orange County and established Orange Youth Centers. In just one year of operation, Orange Youth Centers have served more than 400 young people and have expanded their program to Handy Park, Grijalva Park, Killefer Park and El Camino Park. Project Youth OC is another organization that works extensively in the community to bring agencies together, create an expanded service network, fill gaps in existing services, and enable more effective support and cooperation between providers.
This organization also plays a vital role in educating and advocating for systems change for young people and their families, in particular to reduce the disparities that exist in Orange County. The Orangewood Children's Foundation and the Orange County Children and Family Services Transitional Planning Services Program (TPSP) provide a range of services to support youth in the area. These services include mentoring, community participation, enriching activities, and the development of leadership and life skills. The goal of these organizations is to make Orange County a safe, healthy and satisfying place to live, work and play, today and for future generations. By providing outstanding and cost-effective regional public services, they are helping to ensure that young people have access to the resources they need to succeed.
