Over the last nine months, nine talented young professionals have been working on projects that promote social innovation and address Tulsa's community needs.
Teaching and Leading Initiative - The Mine Fellows are working with the Teaching & Leading Initiative of Oklahoma to commercialize and expand TLI’s expertise in research-based professional learning, teacher recruitment and certification, teacher development, and school leader development. The Fellows are analyzing the market for potential clients and customers and create a business model and expansion plan to best equip novice teachers.
Valued Parks Model - The Mine Fellows are working with the Boston Avenue Multisport & TFSA (Tulsa Field Sports Alliance) collaborative, headed by Mine Alum Kenton Grant, to design and pilot community programming to reengage parks in the City of Tulsa. The team is looking at Veterans Park as a case study to revitalize the park and serve as a model for Tulsa park operations across the city.
