Prior to joining OVRP, Iosefa was a Peace Corps volunteer for over two years

was a noted football player and team captain, capping his senior year with an
Ivy League championship.
Oak View Renewal Partnership is a place-based nonprofit organization engaged
with the Oak View community since 2006. Our mission is to narrow the gap
between Oak View and the rest of Huntington Beach, Calif., while serving as a
model for community development.
