About Us

Opportunity Knocks for Youth, Inc. (OK4Youth) provides resources to Georgia youth who are in need. The mission of OK4Youth is to support and encourage personal growth and development of youth so that they become productive citizens.

For three years, OK4Youth was a local mission supported by the Department of Labor and Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church. By the determined efforts of a board of directors, OK4Youth was incorporated as a nonprofit 501c3 corporation in 2007. The Mt. Bethel Missions Committee continues to partner with the organization by providing a portion of the annual budget.

As a charitable organization that serves all religious, racial and ethnic groups, OK4Youth benefits from the partnerships with other nonprofit organizations.

In addition to regularly scheduled meetings, mentoring, and workshops, the young people in the program benefit from community interaction during purposeful field trips and service projects.

The organization relies upon the work of dedicated volunteers and private contributions. If you would like to learn how you or your group could make a difference, please contact us.
