Mission The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.
Since 1995, the Boys & Girls Club of Oklahoma County has been at the forefront of youth development, working with young people from disadvantaged economic, social and family circumstances throughout Oklahoma City. Our Club is part of a nationwide affiliation of local, autonomous organizations through Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) working to help youth of all backgrounds – with special concern for those from disadvantaged circumstances – develop the qualities they need to become responsible citizens and leaders.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County offer programs at six Club locations in Oklahoma County (Memorial Park at NW 36th and Western in northwest Oklahoma City; Cesar Chavez Elementary and Santa Fe South Elementary, in south Oklahoma City; Adelaide Lee Elementary and Capitol Hill Middle School in Capitol Hill; and Steed Elementary in Midwest City).  The Boys & Girls Clubs offer daily access to a broad range of programs in BGCA’s five core program areas: Character and Leadership Development; Education and Career Development; Health and Life Skills; The Arts; and Sports, Fitness and Recreation. All Boys & Girls Club programs incorporate a youth development approach that fosters a sense of belonging, competence, usefulness and influence among young people. Our programs help young people develop self-confidence and self-esteem.
The Club started in a small community center building in Memorial Park in 1995, then opened its completed 35,000 square feet Memorial Park facility in 2009 to provide a safe, positive environment where members feel physically and emotionally secure. Inside of the building, there are rooms that allow youth to separate in to age-related groups. The building hosts a teen lounge, teen game room, youth game room, cafeteria, library, dance studio, art room, music room,  technology center, gym, and teen fitness center. The organization serves approximately 375 youth, 6-18 years old, at that facility each day.
When they started reaching capacity at the Memorial Park Club, they began the partnership with Oklahoma City Public Schools and Mid-Del Public Schools to host Boys & Girls Clubs within the school buildings, enabling the organization to double the number of youth served each day after school. There are now five Club sites in schools - Cesar Chavez Elementary Boys & Girls Club, Santa Fe South Elementary Boys & Girls Club, Adelaide Lee Elementary Boys & Girls Club, Capitol Hill Middle School Boys & Girls Club, and Steed Elementary Boys & Girls Club.
In pursuit of our mission, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County implements a "Formula for Impact" that provides young people, ages 6-18, with a safe and positive environment, supportive relationships, opportunities and expectations, recognition and fun. We offer compelling and life changing programs in five core areas: Character and Leadership Development; Educational and Career Development; Health and Life Skills; The Arts, and Sports, Fitness and Recreation.
Since 2011, we have expanded from 1 to 6 Club locations, partnering with Oklahoma City Public Schools to operate three new Club locations in local elementary schools with high rates of poverty and poor academic performance. In 2019, we began a new partnership with Mid-Del Schools to operate a new Club location at an elementary school in Midwest City.
Our membership has grown to over 4,000 young people per year, 39% of who are teens; average daily attendance has more than doubled from 285 to over 750 young people per day, and we generally have a waiting lists.
100% of Oklahoma City Public School students qualify for free or reduced lunches at school; 84% of these members live in single parent or guardian households.
98% of our teen Club Members expect to graduate from high school compared to 73% of their Oklahoma City Public School peers; 90% expect to complete some kind of post-secondary education.
61% of Club Members volunteer in their community at least once per year; 36% volunteer monthly.
Over 90% of our teen Club Members report not using alcohol or drugs in the last 30 days, compared to 65% of teens nationally.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County has a proven track record of delivering programs with life changing impact, inspiring and enabling young people to succeed under the most challenging of life circumstances.
1. Financial support is the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County's most critical need. The $10 membership fee per Club member is merely a token which has very little impact on the $3.3 million annual budget. Our organization's largest expenses are personnel, and it is vital that we hire and train staff with the highest level of integrity and genuine concern for the youth and families that we serve.
2. Community Partnerships--many of the enrichment programs we offer at our six Clubs come from robust partnerships with other community organizations. We are a United Way partner agency and collaborate regularly with other United Way agencies. In addition our partnerships with organizations such as the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, Junior League of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma City Ballet, Lyric Theater and others open opportunities for the youth we serve.
3. Volunteers--We need many types of volunteers from groups who come in to clean or paint, to individuals who tutor or mentor a certain group or child.  
CEO/Executive Director Statement According to Robert Putnam's recent book Our Kids, the American Dream in Crisis, poor schools and destitute economic conditions of families have put our country's children in crisis to such a degree that our democracy is at risk. It has gotten to the point that if a child is born in the "wrong" zip code (lack of mobility and community support, low performing schools, etc.), he or she has little chance for success. A Boys & Girls Clubs experience changes that negative trajectory, however, offering hope and experiences that help bridge the widening opportunity gap. In a recent study of Club alumni from around the country, nearly all said the Club was a good experience but 54% said it saved their lives! Through positive adult role models, academic support, enrichment activities, and positive places to be in their out-of-school time, Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County provides not just safety net, but a catapult to better futures. Great Futures start here!

Comments on Staff & Management
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments The opportunities for youth who come to the Boys & Girls Clubs are tremendous and life-changing. Through positive adult role models and enrichment activities, we have three goals for the kids we serve: graduate from High School with a plan for the future; live healthy lifestyles (exercise, nutrition and healthy relationships); and become good citizens. The challenge is to continually raise the funds necessary to provide hope and opportunity for the youth we serve. Unlike other after school programs that charge $50/week for services, our $10/YEAR membership fee does not provide the resources to do what we do, thus requiring continual fundraising from the community. It is vital to keep those membership fees low, however, to reach the youth who need us most! Some foundation and corporations support is critical, but we also need to increase individual giving amounts as a percentage of our annual budget.

Comments on Board & Governance
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments The Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County's board has gotten stronger each year. The Governance Committee has a strategic process for identifying needs within the board then recruiting new board members who can fill those needs. The board is very actively engaged in the work of the organization. In addition, more board members have gotten involved at the state and federal levels with other Boys & Girls Clubs in Oklahoma and Boys & Girls Clubs of America, indicative of increased overall dedication to the mission of the BGC.

Comments on Financials
CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments Relatively new in the national Boys & Girls Club movement, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County is making a tremendous difference for many youth in our community, but the need is much greater than our ability to serve due to financial constraints. Partnerships with public schools are a cost effective way to reach more youth, but our dedication to keeping membership rates extremely low means that we are very dependent on individuals, corporations, foundations and others in the community to support our work. Most cities our size are able to reach a greater percentage of their disadvantaged youth through these life changing programs and relationships.
