About Us

The Orange County Office on Youth has been in existence since 1987, serving the youth of Orange County. Our focus is to enhance the quality of life for our youth and families by effectively addressing youth concerns, assessing needs for services, increasing community collaboration, and assisting in establishing and/or offering programs for positive youth development.

The Office on Youth is administered by the Orange County Administrator and Board of Supervisors. In addition, the office works with the Orange Youth Commission, an appointed eleven member advisory board, to address the needs of the youth within our community.

A number of programs are offered each year, including, but not limited to, the Virginia Comprehensive Services Act, three school age child care programs, and Michael’s Gift. Please browse our site for more information on individual programs.
