Project Management Administrative Assistant
The Opportunity Project, an initiative of the Tulsa Community Foundation, was formed to create a system that will align out-of-school-time (OST) resources and partners, coordinated with local schools, to provide well-integrated, high-quality experiential learning opportunities for youth from pre-K through grade 14. In partnership with the City of Tulsa and Tulsa Public Schools, the coalition will be comprised of an array of community organizations. The coalition has earned the robust support of local and national funders.
The goal of The Opportunity Project is to give youth meaningful learning experiences both in and out of school, helping them become engaged citizens who can compete for quality career and higher-education opportunities in an increasingly competitive environment.
As an intermediary organization, The Opportunity Project will work with its partners-community organizations, schools, local governmental agencies, higher education institutions, private-sector entities, volunteers, youths and their families-to build organizational capacity through continuous-improvement processes to provide more quality expanded-learning opportunities for Tulsa youth.
The Opportunity Project seeks to eliminate the divide between in-school and OST opportunities to create a broader and stronger community of learning that allows youth access to integrated learning which fosters, recognizes, and measures learning anytime, anywhere.
