are our kids.
Teenagers are the future of our community. But the disparities between low- and higher-income youth are widening. It takes a village to ensure that all kids in our community are supported and equipped with the tools they need to thrive. We need your help to provide the kind of learning opportunities that can change the trajectory of a young person's life.
We have work to do in Oklahoma:
in the nation for rates of homicide and suicide among youth 19 and younger
in the nation for states where childhood is most threatened
in the nation for adolescent (15-19 years old) birth rate
of Oklahoma youth live in low-income households
