Pathways Programming


Power of Youth

Power of Youth is our crash course in civic advocacy. It's designed for students in 6th-12th grade who want to make a positive change in our community. Through eight sessions, youth learn critical skills in community advocacy and impact and then apply those skills for a cause of their choice.

Meetings are in-person at the Leadership Tulsa office at 1151 S Elgin Ave. The program is free of cost and is open to any student who lives in the Tulsa area and is in 6th-12th grade.

We have cohorts that run in the Fall, Spring, and Summer! 


Email Hannah Jarman at if you have any questions or you're interested in getting involved.

Monroe Philanthropists

Monroe Philanthropists is a youth-led philanthropy program facilitated in partnership with the Ed Darby Foundation. Each year, 15 Monroe Middle School 8th graders design and execute a philanthropic process to better their community with $10,000 from the Ed Darby Foundation.

School Board Youth Advisory Council 

In spring 2023, in partnership with Tulsa Public Schools and the TPS Board of Education, we piloted the TPS School Board Advisory Council for 10th and 11th-gradestudents. 15 students from across 6 TPS districts worked alongside TPS School Board Members, Superintendent Dr. Gist, and other youth from across Tulsa to listen, research, and act on programs directly impacting youth.

Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming cohort! 

City of Tulsa Youth Council 

In spring 2023, in partnership with the Mayor’s Office and Tulsa City Council, we piloted the City of Tulsa Youth Advisory Council for Tulsa-area high school students. Youth will learn about the essential functions of the city and work alongside City staff and City Councilors to dive deep into the landscape of each City Council district. They will also complete a capstone project in which they will identify their district’s most pertinent needs through listening campaigns and present them to key stakeholders. Intended outcomes for youth include creating a greater awareness of the power of civic participation and building investment in a thriving Tulsa for all.

Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming cohort!
