OMRF seeking teens for philanthropy class

Staff Writer

The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation is seeking applications for its eighth annual Teen Leaders in Philanthropy class. Applications are due March 13.

High schoolers entering their sophomore, junior and senior years are eligible to apply for the program, which helps students gain a deeper understanding of the nonprofit sector. Through group activities and panel discussions with community leaders, students will develop hands-on leadership skills, learn about different types of giving and how they can best implement these skills in their communities.

The program is free for students, and all expenses are covered by OMRF.

Students selected as teen leaders will learn the fundamentals of development, board structure, networking, fundraising and using social media. They will work collectively on a special event to cap off the program activities in the spring.

Applicants must demonstrate good academic standing and attend school in Oklahoma. Group sessions will begin in September and continue throughout the 2020-21 school year.
