Voces Unidas, United Kids, and United Teens



OC United serves the  neighborhoods in South-West Fullerton by empowering parents and children through Voces Unidas / United Voices of Valencia Park (CBI), trauma-wise after-school programs for kids & teens; mentorship, support groups, and community organizing.


Experience-based, social-emotional learning, after-school programs

United Kids
“United Kids” is an after-school program for children from TK-6th grade that takes place at Valencia Park Elementary School in Fullerton. United Kids is a place for children to feel safe, name their emotions, heal what’s been hurt, dream big, and learn with fun.

United Teens
“United Teens” is a program for teenagers from virtually every Junior High and High School in Fullerton and who all belong to the Valencia Park and Gilbert Park regions of Fullerton. Our dream is that each of our teens would gain a healthy sense of power, discover their purpose, and experience belonging.

Advocacy for the community, by the community

Voces Unidas serves the community and advocates for its needs. Our programs include trauma-informed education, domestic abuse support, health education & workshops, connection and empowerment through art and literacy, and most of all – it is made up of parents and their children healing and connecting to each other and their community.

SOLFul Summer Program

SOLful is a month-long summer day camp for 1st – 8th graders filled with fun camp activities aimed at empowering our kids. Our Voces Unidas parents and our United Teens reach more of their neighbors as they volunteer as mentors and activity leaders. A day at SOLFul will include art, cooking, sports, and building new friendships.

The theme of SOLFul 2022 is Change Makers. Our kids are learning to advocate for positive change within themselves, their relationships, and their community. This summer’s activities include public art installations, digital media, community service, and various other projects aimed at platforming their voice for the change they want to see in their community. State Assembly Members, School Board Members, School District Principals, and Fullerton City Government Officials are coming to SOLFul to hear our kids’ voices as they make policies that affect their lives.
