TULSA, Okla. -

The Tulsa Boys and Girls Club will keep its doors opens for students taking part in virtual learning this school year.

The Mabee Red Shield is one of the many locations in the Tulsa metro area that will be offering a safe place for students to learn and take part in the traditional after school programs. Organizers have been working around the clock as they watch area school districts shift to virtual learning. The first part of the day will be dedicated to school and then it will shift to the traditional after school program of activities for kids.

At the Tulsa locations, there are still plenty of spots for the program. More staff has been hired and the WiFi has been tested to make sure it can handle several students on devices. Organizers want parents to know this is a safe option despite any financial concern.

"Cost should not be anything that keeps parents from needing this service. We have a scholarship program that works all that out, other supporters, and funders we can go to. Our goal is really to get the kids here," said Richard White with Salvation Army Tulsa.

The program will start in Tulsa on Monday, August 31. For more information on the program including registration you can click HERE
