Tulsa Changemakers is now the “forever home” of Teens on Board.​

  • Teens on Board is the project of Cohort 10 of the Youth Philanthropy Initiative (YPI).

  • YPI is a three-year program for Tulsa teenagers grades 9-12. Every three years, a group of 25 students (called cohorts) is selected by YPI and provided $25,000 to use toward an issue facing teens which they feel is under-addressed.

  • Cohort 10 of the Youth Philanthropy Initiative launched Teens on Board because they want to “diversify nonprofits by giving teens the opportunity to serve in a leadership position as an advisory to the Board of Directors….Youth boards serve the adult board as both a channel for youth perspective and a resource for expediting the non-profit’s progression.”​

  • In 2019-20, Tulsa Changemakers will:

    • Partner with alumni of YPI Cohort 10 to effectively bring Teens on Board under the Tulsa Changemakers umbrella.

    • Improve Teens on Board’s non-profit partnership processes, recruitment strategies, onboarding, and systems for continued support.

    • Continue the development of Youth Boards at the Mental Health Association of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice.

    • Launch three additional Youth Boards at local non-profits.
