There are several options, depending on your child's age, ability, instrument, and location. The most simple is to find out if his school has a program, or if their are any local community groups. Most local musician's stores will know of available local groups. A high caliber musician should check out the following:

Youth Orchestra LA (YOLA) is the LA Phil's initiative, supported by a network of stakeholders, to provide access to exceptional instrumental and orchestral education in order to promote youth development. Central to YOLA is the LA Phil's plan to build, with community partners, youth orchestras in communities throughout Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles Children's Orchestra (LACO) is considered one of the finest children's orchestras in the world. Children throughout Southern California come to participate in this orchestra. In addition to winning top honors at prestigious regional and national competitions, SPCO has been featured on local and national television and has appeared in numerous publications. In 2009 the orchestra won the World Record for the youngest orchestra ever recorded to perform at Carnegie Hall.
Hope this helps.
