Applications are OPEN for Accelerate Cohort III!

Met Cares is committed to empowering North Tulsa residents to create change in their own neighborhood... so the Accelerate Fellowship was born! Over 8 weeks, fellows journey through the basics of community organizing, civic engagement, and advocacy. In September 2023, our second cohort crossed the finish line. We believe they have gleaned knowledge that will bring life and light to their neighborhood!
