Impact to the Community (in Millions)



The Youth Mentoring Program aspires to help build a better community through quality after-school programming at Kendall-Whittier Elementary School. The program provides equitable educational resources for youth with free after-school programming for 140 students . Program objectives include: enhancing literacy achievement, access to healthy nutrition, and developing positive social skills to build a better citizen.

Reading Partners is an educational nonprofit organization that provides one-on-one literacy tutoring to students struggling with reading in several Tulsa public elementary schools.

The True Blue Neighbors Reading Partners initiative has partnered specifically with two neighborhood schools – Kendall-Whittier Elementary and Sequoyah Elementary.

The TU Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) allows eligible students to earn money by working at on-campus or with local non-profit agencies as a Community Service Work Study. Earnings are based on an hourly wage of $9 and are considered taxable income; however, earnings are not used to determine the financial need with filing the FAFSA.

We are eager to help students get started in identifying meaningful community service opportunities, develop new service initiatives in Tulsa and around the globe, and develop a sustained commitment to service beyond their years at TU.

Whether interested in a one-time opportunity for yourself or an on-going project for an organization or club, the staff in the Volunteer Center can assist in finding that perfect fit.

Students participating in the Public Service Internship program have the opportunity to complete 160 hours of service with non-profit, service -oriented agencies while earning three hours of academic credit.
