Overview


Mission Statement

Future Leaders of Our Community is an organization that brings awareness, inspiration and participation opportunities to young professionals in our community.  Through unique programming with local nonprofits, businesses & community leaders; FLOC impacts its members with passion and commitment for the community.  
 

Background Statement

The Future Leaders of Our Community (FLOC) was established in May of 2009 in response to the need for a community-based organization that bridged the gap between young professionals and nonprofits; the impetus was spawned by the lack of accessible volunteer opportunities, relevant awareness events that invited direct action and inspired leadership.  A motivated team of young professionals in Orange County, California, organized to address the need and in time formed the new nonprofit corporation that received its tax-exempt status in November 2010.

Since its inception FLOC has discovered great success and has partnered with over 80 nonprofits in Orange County, assisting to their needs by engaging thousands of young professionals in their causes and creating hundreds of volunteer opportunities.

In July of 2011 FLOC expanded into Los Angeles and San Diego…setting the foundation to expand into other cities including Phoenix, San Francisco, Denver and Seattle.  In the course of expansion FLOC has partnered with many local and national businesses, foundations, private donors and civic leaders; setting the stage for a FLOC National Office that will operate to support nonprofits across the United States and beyond.  FLOC remains a young organization with an excellent vision and mission for inspiring young professionals.  Click here to view FLOC’s General Monthly History.

Programs


Awareness Events

FLOC Awareness Events are monthly social mixers designed to engage and inspire young professionals to volunteer and support local nonprofits.  Every Awareness Event features a single nonprofit and a presentation detailing the charity’s mission and community impact.  Following the presentation, attendees are encouraged to participate in a special hands-on volunteer day with the charity designed to increase awareness and instill greater participation.  All Awareness Events are video recorded and shared through FLOC‘s social media outlets generating further support and involvement.

Category  Philanthropy, Voluntarism & Grantmaking, General/Other Voluntarism Promotion
Population Served Adults General/Unspecified General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success  The FLOC "Awareness Event" program's short-term success will involve over 1000 young professionals engaged in 12 local nonprofits, resulting in 25 volunteer activities that lead to further engagement and possibly board/committee placement.  
Program Long-Term Success  The FLOC "Awareness Event" program's long-term success will instills greater community participation and understanding of local nonprofits, stronger community ties between participating young professionals, the beginning of philanthropic lifestyles amongst young professionals and greater sustainability for participating nonprofit partners.  
Program Success Monitored By  Program success will be monitored by attendance at "Awareness Events," RSVPs and attendees at follow-up volunteer opportunities and hours tracked via Givsum philanthropic network.  
Examples of Program Success  A primary example of success is a young professional who shows up at a FLOC "Awareness Event," learns about the organization and signs up to volunteer at a later date, shows up to the volunteer experience, spends further time with the organization and eventually becomes a board or committee member for the organization.  

Volunteer Matching

Every year FLOC matches young professionals with hundreds of volunteer opportunities in the local community.  FLOC collaborates with partnering charities to discover their needs and to find placements for individuals as volunteers, committee members and board members.  Every volunteer opportunity is marketed, coordinated and orchestrated by a FLOC staff member ensuring a valuable experience for the individual.  In 2011, FLOC extended its Volunteer Matching program to local corporations such as Starbucks, Wells Fargo, the Microsoft Store, PIMCO and others.  

Budget  $50,000.00
