OneOC was founded originally in 1958 as Newport Bureau of Volunteerism, the very first community service project of the Junior League of Orange County. Newport Bureau of Volunteerism then became the Volunteer Center Orange County.
In 2010, the organization rebranded to become OneOC, signaling our expanded services to nonprofits across the county. Since our early beginnings, we have developed ways for people to best use their valuable time and talent to help others. OneOC holds a 58-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.
We have grown and matured into the largest and most comprehensive of the 250 volunteer centers nationwide, partnering with Points of Light Institute, HandsOn Network and California Volunteers. In 2015, OneOC launched the Center for Business & Community Partnerships, which helps companies build and grow their giving and employee volunteering programs.
