• About the Commission •
Since 1982, the Oklahoma Commission on Children and Youth has helped create quality systems for children, youth, and families by bringing accountability and independent oversight into Oklahoma’s child and youth service system. Its mission is to improve services to Oklahoma’s children by planning, coordinating, and communicating with communities as well as between public and private agencies. Programs within OCCY include the Oklahoma Child Death Review Boards, the Post Adjudication Review Boards, Freestanding Multidisciplinary Teams, the Office of Planning and Coordination, and the Office of Juvenile System Oversight.
OCCY Commissioners meet to approve strategic plans, coordinate efforts between agencies, and make recommendations to the governor, legislature, and child-focused agencies. They serve without compensation for up to four terms of two years each.
