Union To Host Tulsa Changemakers Pitch Night Dec. 13

Union Public Schools will host a Tulsa Changemakers Pitch Night from 5:30 to 7 p.m., December 13 at the UMAC, 6836 S. Mingo Road.

Tulsa Changemakers Fall Pitch Nights will bring together hundreds of youth, parents/guardians, school staff, and community members to hear about the community impact initiatives of youth involved in Tulsa Changemakers and find ways to support the youth’s efforts.

Union school sites participating include McAuliffe, Union High School Freshman Academy, Boevers, Ellen Ochoa, Grove, Union Alt School, Moore, and the High School. If you are unable to attend in person, you can watch theFacebook livestream here.

The Union Alt Ed Changemakers are working on a project to bring hope and resources to Tulsa area foster children. After multiple interviews with people associated with the foster care system, the group learned that not all teens in the foster care system were aware of the resources that could be available to them. The students are holding a bag drive to gather back packs, duffle bags, suitcases, and overnight bags for area foster care kids. Each bag will contain a pamphlet of resources available to help teens in the foster care system transition into adult living, as well as other items and messages of hope.

Since September, teams of elementary, middle, and high school Changemakers across 30 school sites in Tulsa Public Schools and Union Public Schools have conducted listening campaigns in their communities and launched impact projects in response to their listening.

Launched in 2016, the mission of Tulsa Changemakers is to empower promising youth leaders to drive positive impact in Tulsa right now and into the future. Tulsa Changemakers runs a semester long, 25-session afterschool youth leadership development and action program that empowers elementary, middle, and high school students to make meaningful change in their schools and communities. Tulsa Changemakers is a program of Leadership Tulsa. Learn more about Tulsa Changemakers at www.tulsachangemakers.org.
