City of Tulsa brings back 'Bridges of Faith' teen outreach program for 2nd year

TULSA - The City of Tulsa is once again partnering with local churches to keep kids off the streets.

On Wednesday, city leaders announced the need for volunteers.

This is the second year the City has put together "Bridges of Faith."  They're reaching out to church leaders to help keep teens out of trouble this summer.

First lady of Tulsa Victoria Bartlett says they quickly discovered the overwhelming number of teens enjoy playing basketball.

"Bridges of Faith" brings together church volunteers to help mentor and coach at-risk teens.

The City will provide the uniforms and supplies.

During its first year more than 200 teens took part in the program.

Bartlett hopes all Tulsa churches step up to help guide teens.

The program is from June to July.

Bartlett wants any church organization with an indoor basketball court to contact the City and get involved.
