The YCO is passionate about coming alongside the families of Orange to provide trusted, high-quality youth development programs, community engagement opportunities, and mentoring.
- Read a Book, Change a Life - Did you know that an adult volunteer who reads to children can increase school attendance and strengthen the children's’ interpersonal skills? Come and read your favorite children’s book to a group of children or one on one! (We will also provide a book for you if you do not have your own.)
- Create a Craft, Create Memories- We have intentional crafts that you can do with a group. You will create something together and leave with a craft to mark the memory!
- Share Your Skill, Impact the Future- Children love to hear about different career paths and skill sets. Are you a plumber? A technician? A firefighter? An athlete? Come and teach them about your profession while engaging with them with questions and answers!
- Share your Talent, Watch Them Grow- Do you have a fun, special talent that you can share with the kids? (play an instrument, sing, juggle, card tricks, etc.) Children love to learn new talents, tricks, or fun skills!
