KinderVision is a non profit community service organization whose primary purpose is to teach children, teens and young adults personal safety education via a unique, pro-active multimedia program aimed at preventing abduction and sexual exploitation. Prevention through education has been the focus of KinderVision since 1991 and is accomplished using several methods including the KinderVision Safety Education DVDs (K.I.N.D.I., Little Red Said and Big League Interview), on-site KV Kids and TGS Events, comprehensive on-line elements such as “The Greatest Save” Safety Quiz, on-air safety messages, and classroom materials, all designed to be resources for families, law enforcement, schools and youth serving organizations. KinderVision is available in English and Spanish, is supported nationwide by law enforcement, and is funded solely through individual and corporate contributions.
Project SELF (Summer Employment in Law Firms) is a paid, eight-week summer internship that was initiated in 1995 to give youth the opportunity to explore professional careers within the legal community. The program places qualified high school juniors in law firms and law-related businesses in Orange County, CA. These deserving students are consequently introduced to a professional working experience while enhancing their knowledge, experience, and self-esteem.
Project SELF targets students who are entering their senior year of high school in the city of Santa Ana. We have found that the program helps our target population by reducing their risk of juvenile delinquency and providing positive life and career options. The Project SELF opportunity is so important because it exposes youth to professional career fields that they would not otherwise be exposed to. Because of their socioeconomic conditions and cultural limitations, most of these students cannot achieve this exposure without some assistance. They desperately need adult role models and mentors, and they need to know that it is possible for them to go on to college and establish successful careers. Project SELF addresses these needs by providing youth with positive alternatives for spending their summers, access to a professional career environment, and positive mentors to help them with goal setting and preparation for the future.
With the goal of investing in tomorrow’s leaders, Project SELF (Summer Employment in Law Firms) provides high school juniors with paid, hands-on summer internships at local law firms and businesses. Project SELF works to reduce the risk of juvenile delinquency by providing youth with positive alternatives for spending their summers, access to professional and career environments they would not otherwise be exposed to, and the support of positive adult mentors.
There are several ways to give to Project Youth OCBF, including donating online, attending a fundraising event, or becoming a mentor.
Developed in 2001, the Higher Education Mentoring Program is a six-year program that provides low-income Latino high school students from Santa Ana with the academic, social, and financial support needed to graduate from high school and succeed in college.
The program is unique in matching each junior or senior high school student participant with a university student or young professional who is familiar with Latino culture, has overcome traditional barriers, and knows firsthand what it takes to succeed in an institution of higher learning.
