Office of the Mayor

I'm a firm believer in giving every young person the opportunity to have a caring, supportive adult involved in his or her life. Here in Tulsa, our dropout rate is too high, which impacts crime and our city's economic health.

The City of Tulsa's Mentoring to the Max initiative is a communitywide public awareness program which is dedicated to attracting caring adults to become involved in children's lives.

Mentoring helps prepare young people for the future by building character, boosting their self-confidence, and expanding their universe. It helps keep them in school and encourages them to succeed. In spite of the proven benefits, thousands of young people in Tulsa still need help achieving their fullest potential.

Investing in a child's future is a priceless investment in Tulsa's future. Mentoring makes a difference and can transform lives and an entire community. I encourage Tulsans to share their gifts that will enhance a child's life and education and greatly improve Tulsa's future.

The need is great and the time is now! Just one hour a week can make a positive difference in a child's life. Read more about the Mayor's Mentoring to the Max initiative at:
