KIPP Tulsa's Darius Kirk Live United

    • Non-Profit

From the nonprofit Tulsa Area United Way, this is the weekly Live United podcasts. Our guest is Darius Kirk, who serves as executive director of KIPP Tulsa Public Charter Schools, which is a proud Tulsa Area United Way partner agency.

So together with families and communities, KIPP Tulsa identifies Tulsa Public Schools students who are least likely to earn a college degree, and then provides the college preparatory education and support required to earn one. And so that means offering reading and math intervention and homework support. It also means extracurricular activities, including athletics, robotics and, of course, the renowned KIPP Tulsa Drum Line.

In addition, KIPP is providing robust support for social, emotional learning and an identity-affirming and culturally relevant learning environment for the more than 90% of students who identify as Black or Latinx.
