Who We Are
The Boys & Girls Club of Bartlesville is part of a nationwide movement of community-based, autonomous organizations and Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) working to help youth of all backgrounds develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. It offers daily access to a broad range of programs in five core program areas:
- Character and Leadership Development
- Education and Career Development
- Health and Life Skills
- The Arts
- Sports, Fitness and Recreation
All programs are designed to drive positive outcomes for youth and reinforce necessary life skills.
Originally founded in 1954 as the Boys Club of Bartlesville, we are the oldest Boys & Girls Club in Oklahoma. We are committed to serving the community of West Bartlesville and have resided in the same facility since 1961. Although we now serve boys and girls, our mission remains the same—to help our young people achieve their full potential.
Today, more than 800 young people at risk and in need are taking advantage of the programs, activities and services provided by the Boys & Girls Club of Bartlesville. Our vision is to provide a world-class Club Experience that assures success is within reach of every young person who comes through our doors, with all members on track to graduate from high school with a plan for the future, demonstrating good character and citizenship, and living a healthy lifestyle.
BGCA “Gateway to Impact” Award recognizing us as the third fastest growing Club in the nine-state Southwest region.
