Orange County California Area Team

Welcome to the Home Page of the Orange County, CA  Area Team


Our year has been flying by! Our Holiday Party is coming up on December 3rd, yet it seems like our students just arrived a few weeks ago.
A reminder about a couple of upcoming events: The AFS Holiday Party will be coming up on Sunday, December 3 at the home of the Porters in Tustin. Everyone should have received the invitations by now, but if you haven't contact your liaison, or a board member for the information.
We also have a MANDATORY, Mid-year orientation in January. We will give you the exact date as soon as we coordinate with all students and coordinators.
On Tuesday, March 6, our students will be attending a Day In Court in Fullerton, California. It is always a highlight for students to learn about the American judicial system.
We have a couple of other possible activities we are trying to work in for the Spring, and we will give you the information as it comes up.
