Volunteering at Tulsa YouthWorks transformed my family. My husband, a construction worker, and I saw firsthand the power of community and skill development. Our son, who once struggled with confidence, now proudly manages a station at the pizza factory. This experience has brought us closer as a family and taught us the value of hard work and unity.
Coming from a small town with limited opportunities, the trade skill programs at Tulsa YouthWorks were a godsend. My daughter, a college student, attended the summer camps and has since developed a passion for culinary arts. She dreams of opening her own pizzeria one day. Volunteering here not only enriched her life but also strengthened our bond.

My marriage was going through a tough phase. Volunteering together at Tulsa's after-school program gave my husband, a financial analyst, and me a shared purpose. Watching the kids grow and learn, especially in the pizza factory, reminded us of the importance of teamwork and patience. It's been a healing journey for both our marriage and our souls.
Growing up in a challenging neighborhood, I understand the importance of positive influences. Volunteering at Tulsa YouthWorks has been a beacon of hope for my family. My younger brother, an aspiring artist, is now thriving in the trade skill development program. This experience has been a testament to the power of community support.
Community Health Worker
As a single mother, I've always wanted the best for my children. Volunteering at Tulsa's summer camps opened doors for my son, a high school junior, that I never imagined. He's not only learned invaluable skills but has also found a sense of belonging. Our evenings are now filled with stories of his day, and I've never seen him happier.
