About

Did you know that a child with a parent in prison is significantly more likely than their peers to be incarcerated themselves later on in life (one study found up to 5 times more likely)? Did you know Oklahoma incarcerates women at a higher rate than anywhere else in the world? New Hope Oklahoma works with youth 5-18 who have/have had an incarcerated parent, with the mission to end generational incarceration. We provide after school programs, holiday parties, case management, summer camps, and overnight retreats, among other services.

Among other services, we provide after school programs that serve as both a support group and a learning opportunity. Help make a difference for youth by co-leading an after-school group at McAuliffe Elementary every Thursday afternoon. Work with staff to create a supportive, caring group. Help lead youth through games and lessons grounded in the evidence-based curricula used by New Hope to teach social, emotional, and leadership principles and build resilience. Most importantly, serve as a caring adult to youth in our community!
