empower all teens to succeed in the 21st century
Traditional schooling fails, in many ways, to prepare young people for real life. For the benefit of our country, our communities, and the individuals growing up in them, we believe education needs a sweeping renovation. That's why, at Together Tulsa, we identify, support, build, and promote educational experiences for underserved youth that truly prepare them for the economy, challenges, and demands of twenty-first century adult life.
We advocate for youth experiences that foster leadership, entrepreneurship, literacy, and creativity because we believe everyone should be the steward of his or her own future and life.
All youth have equitable opportunities to succeed in the modern economy.
That's why we serve:
Creative-minded, underserved youth with inequitable access to high-quality college and career-preparation opportunities.
Youth who have experienced risk factors as defined by the National Center for Children in Poverty.
Youth who have have left high school.
Youth who are disconnected, homeless, and/or are expecting or parenting.
