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.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and Orange County is partnering with other State agencies to raise awareness about the role everyone can play in valuing children and strengthening families. The Orange County Office on Youth is asking that the community wear BLUE on Wednesday, April 9th to raise awareness for child abuse prevention efforts.

The Orange County Office on Youth will also be accepting donations for pinwheels to be "planted" in highly visible areas of Orange County. Pinwheels are the shared symbol for child abuse prevention and reflects childhood hope, health, and happiness. Each $1.00 received will be used to purchase a pinwheel from Prevent Child Abuse Virginia.  Remaining proceeds will benefit Orange County Food Pantries.  Send your donation to the office on Youth by Tuesday, April 1st and see hundreds of pinwheels planted in Orange County on April 9th.
