Project Youth OCBF
In 1969, Project Youth OCBF was established as the philanthropic arm of the Orange County Bar Association under the name Orange County Bar Foundation. In 2018, we added a dba to our name (Project Youth OCBF) to better reflect that we are a provider of youth programs. Due to the success of our work supporting at-risk youth, in 1981 we became an independent 501c3 nonprofit agency. We are located in Santa Ana. We work closely with the Santa Ana community including local law
enforcement & schools. We also work throughout Orange County to assist youth & families in need. Our agency is fiscally sound & has a strong governing board of 40 directors. We have a direct service staff of fifteen bilingual/bicultural program coordinators, case managers & clinical supervisors, all with training & experience working with youth to provide juvenile crime & substance use prevention, mental health, sexual health education, & academic/career growth. We have a long-term executive director, who has been with our agency for thirty-two years, seventeen years as executive director. Six additional management directors oversee programs, fund development, finances & research and development. All management staff are experienced and highly qualified to assist in the operating of a 501 c3 agency.
Project Youth OCBF has a long history operating culturally competent, high-quality, & cost-effective programs for the identified target population. For over 50 years, Project Youth OCBF has responded to the growing needs of Orange County youth and families.
