Boy Scout of America Troop 1803 is a primarily African-American Scout Troop based in Orange County, California. There are currently 11 young men serving as Scouts and are between 11 and 18 years of age. Scouting reinforces their duty to God, duty to country and duty to themselves. They are very active in the community doing such activities as helping the disabled with yard maintenance, handing out food baskets during Thanksgiving and a host of other activities.

The money allowed the Scouts to experience outdoor adventures that included:

Camping
White Water Rafting
Mud Run Obstacle completion
Archery
Horseback riding
Sporting Events

OCUF volunteers Kalonji Saterfield, Warner Brown III, Malcolm Perry and Chris Walton supported this event with their presences and presented a $1,000 donation to help support on going programming at the center.

OCUF Completes Its 2nd STEAM Cohort

Our new Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) program is an important component of our already mature and successful STEM mentoring program.  Our STEAM mentorship program is committed towards providing guidance to college undergraduate students through participation in workshops, community service, and one-on-one mentorship.

The goal of the program is to foster educational and professional success by preparing and inspire young women and men in underserved communities to pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) discipline and environments.  These skills are needed for the jobs of tomorrow and through our STEAM initiative, we are expanding our CMP program even further and providing the essential components to prepare our students for the future.
