|Who We Are
To value and accept all youth, supporting and challenging them to embrace their potential.
Empowered youth who grow and achieve.
Youth Services of Tulsa (YST) has been meeting the needs of, and advocating for, Tulsa area youth and their families since 1969. Over the years, we have evolved to stay on top the ever-changing, increasingly complex needs of young people, ages 12 to 24.
Youth Services is the only non-profit organization in Tulsa focused solely on adolescents and young adults.
More than 17,000 young people will turn to YST this year for help – some at the most difficult times in their lives. To meet the diverse needs of these at-risk youth, we offer a wide array of innovative and proven programs focused on counseling, runaway and homeless youth, delinquency prevention and youth development. Our programs are based on the needs and input of youth, their families, and our community, and are recognized as national models for quality and creativity.
Our commitment to quality services and successful outcomes is demonstrated by our accreditation by the Council on Accreditation. Recognized as one of Oklahoma’s top non-profits, Youth Services received the ONE (Oklahoma Nonprofit Excellence) Award in Youth Development.
