Associate Board

Project Youth OCBF’s Associate Board is a volunteer group of successful, socially conscious, and motivated young professionals in their 20’s and 30’s, who support the mission of Project Youth.

The Associate Board provides support by building awareness in the community about the programs of Project Youth and raises funds by holding several fundraisers a year. Project Youth OCBF’s Associate Board introduces young professionals to the varied programs and works of the organization. Through volunteer activities, social events and networking opportunities, the Associate Board assists in the cultivation of the next generation of leaders committed to Project Youth and serving those in need in our community.

Associate Board President’s Message

Wesley K. Polischuk, Esq.

“This country will not be a good place for any of us to live in unless we make it a good place for all of us to live in.” Those are the words of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States of America. Those are words that embody the goals and spirit of not only the Associate Board of Directors, but the entire Project Youth OCBF organization.

Over the past year, our organization has taken two significant steps to continue to make Orange County “a good place for all of us to live in.” Through the sacrifice and giving efforts of many individuals, we were able to purchase and move into a beautiful building in Santa Ana. The building not only increases our space but it also provides us with a safer, optimally-located space to serve our youth and their families.

In addition to updating our home, we also updated our name to Project Youth OCBF. The new name, which was the culmination of tireless work by Board Members, Associate Board Members, staff and others, captures what we do and is another step forward.

I am extremely honored and humbled to serve as the 2018 President of Project Youth OCBF’s Associate Board. Our group of 35 young Orange County professionals is excited to continue to provide local youth and families with the skills, education, and resources needed to make positive choices, and build a foundation for a future of opportunity and success.

On behalf of the Associate Board, consider helping us and our amazing staff make Orange County “a good place for all of us to live in.”
