The Junior League of Tulsa, Inc., has partnered with Street School, the only tuition-free, non-profit, alternative school in the Tulsa area that provides education along with therapeutic counseling and outreach programs. Street School focuses on drop-out prevention, intervention, and recovery for students in grades 9 through 12.
This project started with our 2015-2016 year. Our volunteers develop and conduct cooking classes twice a month for high school students participating in Street School’s “Culinary Club”. Our classes focus on providing students with affordable and healthy meal options along with basic food preparation education. In addition to our lessons, the students are sent home with ingredients to recreate the dishes.
