Changing the life of a child, one climb at a time.
Touchstone Youth Projects mission: To serve Oklahoma area youth through mentoring, experiential education, and life-skill cultivation at no charge to them.
Through their afterschool experiential program Touchstone Youth Project serves over 100 at- risk children a week. They provide a safe place for children to build safe relationships with their mentors and provide a healthy meal for children who may not otherwise get one today. Because ,when youth have a caring, invested, consistent adult, they are 50% more likely than their peers who lack that relationship to avoid drugs, gangs, and to overcome the typical struggles that face their community and to press on and be successful. It takes just one caring adult. Just one.
Today Oklahoma is one of only 14 states that does not fund afterschool programs. The impact is felt in our communities ;
Touchstone Youth Project is committed to changing these outcomes.
Your support in helping me reach my $ 1,000 goal will enable Touchstone to meet it’s goal of $ 20,000 and impact the lives of 30 children, by providing them with a consistent, caring adult.
