Home / About Us / History


Founded in 1958, OneOC has a 56-year track record of encouraging people to become personally involved in making our community a good and welcoming place to live, work, and raise a family.  Since our early beginnings, we have developed ways for people to best use their valuable time and talent to help others. Formerly called the Newport Bureau of Volunteerism, growing to Volunteer Center Orange County, we were the very first community service project of the Junior League of Orange County.


Today, we have grown and matured into the largest and most comprehensive of the 250 volunteer centers nationwide. We also enjoy a partnership with Points of Light Institute, HandsOn Network and California Volunteers.
