Nearly 8,400 teenagers across the metro OKC area identify themselves as homeless. That’s not including the more than 2,000 who are unaccounted for.

Right now, the new SISU Youth center is open for young adults on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., but the goal is to get it going 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It’s all volunteer driven. Among the volunteers are counselors, a music therapist and even a therapeutic yoga instructor.

What a wonderful resource!

This post is a little late, and if you are planning on going, we have probably already spoken to you and have you on the list…. Most likely it is too late to join in, but I thought I would post our new events just to keep everyone in the loop about our current events.

This Thursday, July 21st, OKCYU will be going on a field trip to Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The youth group will meet at First Unitarian Church
Make sure and bring a signed copy of the permission slip if you want to go! (Contact us if you need a copy).

Then the youth group will head out for Tulsa! They will be visiting the Oklahoma Aquarium and meeting with the Tulsa LGBT youth Group- Open Arms. It will be a fun day of fish and fellowship with other lgbt teens from Oklahoma. Remember to participate in the OKCYU activities you must be between 14 and 21 and for this particular trip you must have a signed permission slip if you are under 18. This is only for youth that have attended meetings in the past.
