"Our vision is to foster highly interactive and attractive programs and a safe environment for the youth and community of Altus AFB."

The Altus AFB Youth Center focuses on youths, ages 5 to 18 years old. The center flourishes with alliances with the Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA), 4-H and the Council on Accreditation.
