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
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
