Join Our Tulsa Team
City Year Tulsa is wholly focused on fighting the national dropout crisis. We have committed to leverage the talent, energy, and idealism of AmeriCorps members ages 17-25 to serve as tutors, mentors and role models in schools to help students stay on track – or get back on track – to graduate. It’s a big decision to choose where you want to spend 11 months helping students succeed and working in a community to #makebetterhappen. Tulsa has rapidly grown into a vibrant, modern metro area of nearly 1 million residents, with all the amenities of a big city, while still maintaining its “small town” charm. In many ways, it's a perfect place to jumpstart your career or education while enjoying the many unique places, fun event and creative people that call this "Magic City" home.
