Read about our Service Learning Projects

C.A.R.E.S. Backpack Drive: In collaboration with C.A.R.E.S., we collect new backpacks and school supplies to help kids start the school year off right. C.A.R.E.S. is a YMCA program offering Christian Assistance Resources Education & Services to staff, members and communities.

Essentials Drive: collect essential items for homeless infants and toddlers, and help raise awareness to support homeless families.

Coastkeepers Beach Cleanup: in partnership with Orange County Coastkeepers, this service learning project includes educational activities and field excursions where kids will have the opportunity to learn about their local watershed, receive resources to take positive actions for their environment, learn about ocean pollution and make a difference themselves by conducting a beach clean-up.

Stocking for the Troops: The YMCA of Orange County partners with Words of Comfort, Hope and Promise, Cub Scout Pack 290 and Starbucks stores in the area to collect as many donations as possible to send to our troops oversea for the Christmas season.

Other Service Learning Projects: Easter Basket for the Troops, Elderly Pen Pals, Project Secret Santa.

Read about the Director

I have been working for the YMCA for over six years. I started with the Mission Valley YMCA in San Diego while I was attending San Diego State University.  I was there for 5 years, working at Toler Elementary during the school year and leading summer camps at the main branch during the summer.  I moved to Germany and worked for the Army’s Child and Youth Services at a youth center on a military base in Stuttgart for several years.  When I moved back to California, I knew I had to work for the Y again.  I’ve been with the YMCA of Orange County since January of 2016.

In between my junior and senior year of high school I took a trip to Russia to run a summer camp for kids in an orphanage.  From that moment, I knew that I wanted a job where I could make a difference.  I’ve kept in touch with many of the children from that orphanage and have seen how much an adult can make a difference in a child’s life.  That is the driving force behind my passion for working with kids!
