Who we are
The OCHYCC strives to promote the development of young professionals at the graduate and undergraduate levels for any students in the Orange County area. We encourage professional development by offering networking opportunities, educational workshops, and access to scholarships.
The OCHYCC is dedicated to linking culturally diverse college students to the professional world through career development, community involvement, and access to higher education. We are devoted to promoting leaders of tomorrow by extending our hands today.
The OCHYCC connects students with the corporate world by developing a series of roundtable discussion series. The Roundtables were developed to prepare students for entry into the work force. Examples of the roundtable topics include Business Etiquette, Networking, Resources for Graduate School, Public Speaking and Presentation, Mock Interviews and Professional Communication.
Key presenters and guest speakers have included corporate and community representatives from Verizon Wireless, AT&T, State Farm, Disney, Ernst & Young, Wells Fargo, the Small Business Development Center, and the National Society of Hispanic MBA's and many more. The Roundtables provide participants with professional expertise experiences in corporate and community environments.
