Our Mission

The mission of the Oklahoma Association of Youth Services is to strengthen member agencies as they strive to improve the overall health and well-being of Oklahoma children and families through advocacy, training, and technical assistance.


Our Philosophy

We believe all communities have within them the seed, that when nurtured, can help them to embrace who they are, defining their future, and changing our world.


Our Vision

OAYS is the leader in Youth and Family Services. Realizing the full potential of youth and family services, we provide universal access to quality, individualized community-based services that positively impact children, youth, and families  to drive a new era of development, growth, and collaborative community productivity.
