Weekly outreaches are at the core of our program as we partner with strategic organizations all over Tulsa. These outreaches occur weekly, but students are simply asked to serve as regularly as possible. By our collective involvement, we are able to build deep relationships, invest in the staff of the organizations, and understand the needs of the community to make a sustainable impact. Transportation is provided and trained student leaders will be present every week.
