The Oklahoma Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs

The Oklahoma Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs AmeriCorps Program furthers the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America by uniting AmeriCorps Members and “the kids who need [them] most!” Through helping with homework, providing exciting incentives for all types of academic achievement and engaging extracurricular activities our AmeriCorps Members strengthen children’s connection to school and learning.  This positive reinforcement is helping children all across the state become more academically engaged and teaching them skills and attitudes that will benefit them far beyond the program year.  AmeriCorps Members receive training throughout the year on how to work with at-risk youth in after school settings, BGCA programming, and topics that will help their professional development.
