About Us

Youth At Heart has been serving Tulsa youth for 45 years.

Since 1976, Youth At Heart has been a leader in providing programs in education, recreation and social development to youth in Tulsa’s socio-economically challenged neighborhoods. We are more than an afterschool program. Our programs encompass tutoring, character training, youth mentoring, health and fitness training, sports leagues, career exploration, community service, and summer camp.


Youth At Heart's team of dedicated staff and volunteers help Tulsa's underserved youth cultivate their hidden potential and lead healthy productive lives.


We provide Tulsa's underserved youth a place to go - not just afterschool, but in life.
