Community Outreach Alliance (COA), is a non-profit organization established in 2014 with its roots in San Clemente, California. Pioneered by Pondo Vleisides and Teri Steel, they saw a dire need to help children and young adults in the community fight against drug abuse and addiction.
Now more than ever, we need to engage our youth in clean and healthy lifestyle choices that may just be essential to their survival and success.

As such, our goal is to create programs that young people can enter into, while providing access to professionals and volunteers that can help them on their journey. Then eventually, some of them can choose to give back by engaging in their own community outreach, and by actively participating or performing at local events, bringing the process full-circle and creating memories and experiences that will last a lifetime!

Due to the COVID pandemic, we have been forced to suspend some of our programs, but one day soon COA will again be offering weekly classes covering an array of activities and opportunities: we want our up and coming generations to involve themselves in music, sports, internships, leadership courses, giving and volunteering, gaming, fundraising, photography, art, counseling, comedy, and much more!

If you need help or want to help us during these trying times, please do not hesitate to reach out by phone or email:


COA is a 501c3 non-profit service.
