"most violent juvenile crimes occur during the hours immediately after school, from 3-6 PM"

Just 11% of Oklahoma children participate in an after school program.

The gap in extracurricular participation between low-income youth and their more affluent peers is widening.

"These" kids

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:

44th

in the nation for rates of homicide and suicide among youth 19 and younger

46th

in the nation for states where childhood is most threatened

48th

in the nation for adolescent (15-19 years old) birth rate 

49%

of Oklahoma youth live in low-income households

We support and promote innovative educational experiences that give young people the skills they really need to navigate the twenty-first century economy, challenges, and demands they'll face as young adults.
