Mission Statement

In 1956, the Newport Harbor Service League was established with the purpose of rendering volunteer service in the welfare, education, cultural and civic phases of the community. The group joined the Association of Junior Leagues International (AJLI) as the Junior League of Newport Harbor in 1971, and in 1985 the name was changed to the Junior League of Orange County, California, Inc., to reflect the expansion of the organization’s membership and projects. Today, the JLOCC is one of 292 AJLI member Leagues worldwide.

 3. Raised awareness about one of our organization's focus areas, Human Trafficking, by launching a new social media campaign (BT1 - Be the One), in which 34 members participated, and hosted the 5th Annual Human Trafficking Community Roundtable.  
 4. Hosted the 42nd Annual The Christmas Company and 4th Annual Golf Classic fundraising events. 

Needs Statement

Examples of Program Success  --

Junior League Juniors

Junior League Juniors is a program designed to inspire elementary school children (Kindergarten – 5th Grade) to be active members of their community, to promote volunteerism, and to expose children to local issues where they can make an impact both today and in the future. The goal is that our events will teach children about important issues facing Orange County and inspire them to continue to get involved and help better their communities throughout their lives.

The Junior League Juniors Program Series consists of five to seven events between the months of September and May. Each event will shine a spotlight on a different community issue. Some of the past years’ events have been focused on bullying, adoption awareness, social isolation among those with disabilities, multicultural health and hunger, Earth Day, and physical fitness.

Our events take a service learning approach, which means they have a lesson portion followed by a volunteer portion that allow children to directly apply what they have learned. Getting hands on experience with each issue and with community partners allows the children to truly feel that they are contributing to change and making a difference.

Budget  $500.00
Category  Community Development, General/Other Community Development, General/Other
Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Children learn about important issues facing Orange County and feel inspired to continue to get involved and help better their communities throughout their lives.
Program Long-Term Success  Children are empowered to become active members of their community and make an impact to local issues in ways they can.
Program Success Monitored By  Consistent participation and growth with local children.

Samueli Academy

Junior League of Orange County, CA, Inc. is proud to support Samueli Academy, the Orangewood Children’s Foundation’s college-preparatory public charter high school. Samueli Academy’s mission is to provide a transformational learning environment to underserved teens and will serve as both a home and educational facility to foster and at-risk youth. JLOCC members have many hands-on volunteer opportunities on the Academy campus. We have been involved with facilitating their monthly Community Nights, as well as various events throughout the school year. We look forward to creating new and exciting programs that will broaden each member’s training experience and most importantly, positively impact the life of each student.

Budget  $200.00
Category  Education, General/Other Elementary & Secondary Education
Population Served Adolescents Only (13-19 years) At-Risk Populations Other Economic Level
Program Short-Term Success  Graduation rates among at-risk and foster youth will increase to over 60%.  Samueli Academy will also provide a stable environment where these children can focus on their education, and not worry about losing friendships due to the possibility of moving away.
Program Long-Term Success  Samueli Academy will provide a stable environment for at-risk and foster youth to complete their secondary education.  Currently, approximately 50% of foster youth finish high school due to circumstances beyond their control (moving from home to home).  The Academy will decrease the need for these children to move from school to school because of the housing that will be made available to them during the school week.
Program Success Monitored By  Increased graduation rates and college enrollments will result from the creation of Samueli Academy.

Human Trafficking Awareness and Education Campaign

Due in large part to the resort industry and transportation infrastructure, Orange County has become a hub of human trafficking in California. Foster children are particularly vulnerable to human traffickers since they often lack a stable home life and support system. JLOCC holds a vision to combat the perils of human trafficking by networking and collaborating with organizations that share the same vision in the Orange County community. Together we will educate and bring awareness to change public perception on what human trafficking is via trainings, rallies, and community events that include victims, law enforcement, data/statistics, and policy development.

Budget  $4,200.00
Category  Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy, General/Other Civil Rights, Social Action & Advocacy, General/Other
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) At-Risk Populations General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  Increased awareness will help necessitate the passage of laws that will punish human traffickers.
Program Long-Term Success  Increased awareness of human trafficking will lead to an increase in arrests of perpetrators, which will diminish the number of victims impacted by this crime. 
Program Success Monitored By  Passage of laws punishing human traffickers and number of community members educated about the issue of human trafficking
Examples of Program Success  The passage of California Proposition 35, Ban on Human Trafficking and Sex Slavery in November 2012.  This proposition was supported by the State Public Affairs Committee's (SPAC) of the Junior Leagues in California.
