The Orange County Community Foundation Youth Council program is designed to train future leaders to become lifelong philanthropists wherever they may live.


Vision Statement:
• Improving the philanthropic education of all citizens of the county
• Using grants to help better Orange County and its citizens
• Providing leadership assets to better our community one step at a time.
