Connecting Youth to the World of Opportunity

Relate918 is a community-wide initiative led by Tulsa Public Schools and The Opportunity Project to equip students with the skills needed to succeed in school, at home, and in life. Working with Tulsa Public Schools to organize and deepen the resources in Tulsa, The Opp’s mission to build confident kids and connected communities is more achievable than ever.

AfterOpp is a joint initiative of The Opportunity Project, Tulsa Public Schools, and site-level coordinating agencies such as Tulsa Debate League, Youth At Heart, and City Year. Through this FREE program, middle school students enjoy fun, safe after-school programs — ranging from sports, arts and music, to hands-on science. Through hands-on activities students are given the opportunity to explore their passions, expand their interests and build positive relationships with peers and adults.

Super Summer is a joint initiative of The Opportunity Project, Tulsa Public Schools and a variety of youth serving organizations and funders across the city of Tulsa. This pilot program offers 250 students across two Tulsa Public school sites, Walt Whitman Elementary School and McClure Elementary School, with hands-on learning opportunities over the summer.

In 2020, the Super Summer team was able to pivot and offer virtual learning opportunities to youth, in response to COVID-19. Through this virtual experience, students were able to interact with learning partners and other students as they completed various expanded learning activities over the course of 4 weeks.

Super Summer was an enriching experience that we hope to recreate in person next summer! We hope to see you there!

Tulsa City of Learning is a citywide interactive website connecting youth and families, like YOU, to high-quality camps, clubs, and after-school programs. You can explore and enroll in a variety of activities which are available in your neighborhood and throughout the city – including STEM, art, dance, sports, and more! 

Tulsa City of Learning is a joint initiative of The Opportunity Project and Tulsa Public Schools.

HIRE Up (Holistic Investments in Relevant Experiences) is a joint initiative of Tulsa Public Schools and The Opportunity Project to offer older TPS youth paid work experiences with scaffolded and wraparound supports. Youth will be paired with community organizations, nonprofits, and schools.

 

In a typical week, youth will work four days per week for a community partner and one day per week with their peer cohort in workshops, mentoring, and reflection. Peer cohorts will meet weekly. Workforce and community partners along with the TPS Internship Coordinator will offer workshops and mentoring support during peer cohort time.
