Invest in Future Generations

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela

Now is the time to make a difference. Now is the time to support today’s youth and tomorrow’s leaders. Now is the time to invest in the future.

Donate to Giving Tuesday and create positive opportunities for our youth. Your support is invaluable to the success of Project Youth OCBF in providing programming for youth and families to obtain skills, education, and resources needed to make positive choices, and build a foundation for a lifetime of opportunity and success.

Our generous donors directly support hours for our youth and families. Just this year, Project Youth has provided over 21,000 hours of legal education to divert juvenile crime and substance use (SHORTSTOP & STOP SHORT of Addiction), 10,500 hours health education to prevent teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted and HIV infections (Madres Unidas and Cuidate), and 22,000 hours of academic and career development to prepare low income minority youth to succeed and complete a college education with a paid summer internship (Higher Education Mentoring Program & Project SELF).
