The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF) is proud to present the philanthropic leadership program for Oklahoma high school students: “OMRF Teen Leaders in Philanthropy: Philanthropy Is in Your DNA.”

In its fourth year, this is the first program of its kind designed to educate Oklahoma youth about the non-profit industry, how non-profits work, and how teens can be philanthropists who work alongside non-profits in identifying community issues and achieving creative solutions. With the ever-growing importance of non-profit organizations in our community, it is imperative that we educate the next generation about how they can become philanthropists and real partners with non-profit organizations. 

Students will learn leadership principles, earn service hours and gain experience in a fundraising project of their own design. The program will meet monthly, alternating between day and evening sessions throughout the school year. 

We invite Oklahoma students to apply. Up to 40 students will be chosen. Applications and additional information is available here. Online applications and other requirements are due March 1.
