Who we are
Since 2015, the Met Cares Foundation has been working to drive advocacy, fuel positive change and encourage civic engagement by inspiring community ownership and improving and increasing educational opportunities throughout North Tulsa.
What we do
Transforming outcomes for and with North Tulsa families.
Raising up tomorrow's leaders
Greenwood Leadership Academy exists to reimagine what is possible for students across North Tulsa. Rooted in the values of Black excellence and the spirit of Black Wall Street, our Pre-K through 5th grade school strives to educate the whole child through trauma-informed learning techniques, a strong and welcoming culture, deep parent engagement and an intentional partnership with our community.
MCF is working to support the smooth transition of operations for the 2022-23 school year at GLA to our co-founding partner, Tulsa Public Schools.
Community & Family Engagement
Building collective power for change
The Met Cares Foundation believes that the power of our families and our community is the greatest asset we have.
That is why our engagement efforts ensure that their stories, ideas and concerns are at the center of driving our work.
Together, we believe in our ability to build collective power to lead sustained efforts for change for North Tulsa.
Reinforcing our Commitment
The PCAT (Parent Community Action Team) Fellowship unlike anything else offered in Tulsa. Started in 2018 as a way to bring community members with a deep commitment to North Tulsa together to deepen their grassroots organizing skills, the annual fellowship has grown to reach thousands of Tulsans through house meetings and our powerful Building Wakanda Summit.
Met Cares Foundation Vision Statement
"Rooted in and inspired by the ancestors of Greenwood, North Tulsa will be a vibrant community where children are thriving and residents have the power to make positive change!"
Our 2019 Summit
In May of 2019, 300 community members came together to take part in our second Building Wakanda summit. Together, we agreed on a list of 20 policy recommendations and called on our city's decision makers to lead the charge in implementing these necessary, community-lead reforms.
