Our task is to not only teach our youths the importance of unity, but to also strengthen their self esteem, build their character, and instill knowledge of their heritage with plenty of room for fun through song and dance. MYOC is comprised of the first generation Marshallese children of Orange County. With proper guidance, reassurance and resources we trust that MYOC as a non-profit entity will grow strong in it’s’ quest to unite the children of the Marshall Islands throughout Southern California. It is essential that we preserve and retain what culture and tradition we have left while incorporating skills required to succeed in the Western World as well. As we move forward aside our partners, The Marshallese Youth of Orange County will gain yet another step in their climb towards success as they strive forward in their quest to achieve cultural edification and a stronger understanding of the history of the Pacific Region.

Mission: The Marshallese Youth of Orange County (MYOC) is organized exclusively for charitable relations in health, education and cultural purposes, more specifically to assist in all aspects regarding Health, Education and cultural awareness through various charities, donations and federal or state aided programs for the Marshallese Children of Orange County

FIRST Marshallese to return home since the RMI closed their boarders!!!

First Marshall Islanders in nearly 3 months return home

MAJURO — Two Marshall Islanders who drifted at sea for 42 days and seven others were returned home Thursday, the first people allowed into this western Pacific nation since early-March after a Covid-19 travel ban was enforced.

They were greeted on arrival by authorities wrapped in full-body personal protection equipment and were tested for Covid-19 at the airports on Kwajalein and Majuro, then placed into 14-day quarantine.

The two fishermen from Ebeye Island, Godfrey Capelle and Benjamin Thomas, survived an ocean drift of over 1,600 kilometers (1,000 miles) before washing up on Namoluk Atoll in the Federated States of Micronesia on May 14. Their repatriation was complicated by international and domestic Covid-19 travel bans in the FSM. Ultimately, they were transported by a FSM surveillance vessel from Chuuk to Pohnpei this week Wednesday in order to be in place for the arrival Thursday of an Air Marshall Islands charter flight dispatched to collect them and seven Marshall Islanders who had been stranded in Pohnpei since the travel ban went into effect March 8.

We are saddened to announce yet again, the collapse of another pillar in our community. On December 31, 2019 our beloved Deacon Kellong John joined the round table of our elders that passed before him.

Through the years we have been blessed with his dedication to his Faith, Family and Community; how awesome was it to bask in his love;

May our love carry him on his journey to meet OUR MAKER.... Thank you Baba/Jimma for your guidance, your teachings, and your un-weathering love. We love you, we love you, we love you.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of yet another pillar on our community our beautiful, beautiful, beautiful Elder Deaconess Mrs. Berty Ralpho. Mrs. Ralpho has been the mama to MYOC from inception, and we have been blessed and that much stronger from her guidance, words of encouragement and her presence in all that we have done to date.

We MYOC raise our hands to our ALMIGHTY FATHER as he welcomes her into his KINGDOM. God give us strength as we send our mama back into your arms and Heal our hearts as we prep for her journey.

Mrs. Berty Ralpho is survived by our brothers and sister Rony Ralpho, Rodney Ralpho and Likkein Ralpho, all Board members of MYOC.

Friends and family, please join us as we pay our respects:
