Committed to Bartlesville’s Youth
Today, nearly 1,200 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.
Since 2010, we have witnessed a drastic increase in the number of children we serve. Our average daily attendance was 51 children in 2010. By 2019, our average daily attendance had sky-rocketed to 259 per day in the school year and our numbers served only increase during the summer. While we’re proud of our growth, our goal is not to only get kids through our blue doors. Once inside, we strive to engage, encourage and support them to reach their full potential.
