About Us

Origin of OCAF


During the summer of 2007 at the Los Angeles Campus of SpringfielCollege, Team B was seriously concerned about the future of at-risk youth. While working on Project III, the team realized their dedication to effect change in their homes, schools, and communities

Research began by asking three questions:

1. How effective are community based youth    empowerment programs?

2. What are some of the issues affecting positive youth  development?

3. How can early intervention in the home, schools, religious establishments or churches and the community in general contribute to positive youth development?

The team conducted a quantitative and qualitative interview of nine local youth organizations and concluded the organizations work was not recognized enough and they are pressed for funding although they continue to keep strong moral values of leadership.
