Program Overview

The Orange County Youth Center (OCYC) began approximately 42 years ago, when the City of La Habra began to operate workforce development programs for youth and adults under the Manpower Development and Training Act , a United States federal law enacted in 1962 to train workers and provide them with employment. Workforce Development laws may have changed throughout the 42 years, but the City of La Habra has remained constant in the delivery of employment and training programs. Beginning in 2004, the City of La Habra began exclusively providing services to at-risk youth, ages 17-24, from funding under the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), through a grant administered by the Orange County Workforce investment Board (OCWIB). In 2012, John Muir Charter School joined the OCYC as an onsite partner providing an accredited high school diploma completion program to youth ages 16-25.

The Orange County Youth Center (OCYC) offers young people the opportunity to develop career interests, receive academic support, and gain valuable work experience in order to achieve their career/educational goals. Our services are available to eligible youth, ages 17-24, residing in La Habra, Brea, Fullerton, Yorba Linda, Placentia, Buena Park, or La Palma.
