 Oklahoma Serves

The Oklahoma Serves program places AmeriCorps members statewide at non-profit organizations, public agencies, colleges and universities, schools, and other community-based organizations dedicated to providing services to children and youth.  Member service activities include mentoring, tutoring, implementing educational enrichment and health programs, and supporting food banks.  

Since its inception in 2004, 526 OK Serves AmeriCorps members have impacted the lives of over 281,000 Oklahoma youth.  Additionally, members have served 336,861 hours and have recruited and served alongside 43,038 volunteers through agencies and schools that partner with OK Serves.
