“Impacting our world through compassion."
OCCares is a non-profit organization comprised of community and business leaders dedicated to raising up socially conscious youth through "PROJECT Y", a Youth Social Entrepreneurship Program.
To educate and inspire the next generation of Social Entrepreneurs as compassionate agents of change.
Developing club - based programs designed to provide students with the vision necessary to identify needs in the community, and to prepare them with the essential business and life skills they need to address those needs with a social impact.
OCCares provides a framework under which the students can earn meaningful service hours while learning philanthropy and practical business skills. Compassion and leadership skills empower our youth. U.S. colleges are looking for students who are:
Committed to a project or cause for one to three years
Involved in service that extends beyond short term service through their school or local charity
Vested in socially conscious activities that demonstrate social impact achieved
HOW IT WORKS:
OCCares acts as the conduit between schools, students, and vetted non-profit organizations. OCCares community leaders assist Project Y Clubs with:
Launching and operating Project Y Clubs in schools and youth organizations
Identifying the needs and social issues in their communities
selecting a non-profit organization that is meeting those needs
Creating a plan to use the leadership and business skills to raise funds and awareness for their chosen cause(s)
Enhancing leadership and business skills through seminars and shadowing opportunities
INVITATION TO OUR YOUTH: We invite you to launch a Project Y Club in your school or youth group by finding a sponsor and recruiting other students to join the movement!
