Are you a 4th-8th grade student in the Norman area?
Do you have a desire to learn and grow in your leadership?
Are you interested in discovering and developing your passion?
Are you ready for new experiences and collaborating with new friends?

If you answered YES to all these questions, 

Loveworks could be the place for you!

Between 3:00pm to 6:00pm, students are most likely to be influenced in either a positive or negative way. It is the choices they make during these afternoon hours and the people they spend time with that make a difference that can last a lifetime. Loveworks Afterschool Leadership is designed to help students make positive life choices, discover career paths, and set them on a trajectory for personal success. Students will improve their social, emotional, intellectual, physical, career, financial, and community well-being by pursuing a life where they can apply their unique leadership qualities and discover their dreams. 

Volunteers and mentors facilitate groups, games, conversations, and meal times. Each student receives personalized attention, snack, and a nutritious dinner meal, while participating in specialized projects involving local artists and community professionals. Experiential learning projects are geared towards developing skill sets within the students and broadening their awareness to cultural diversity.

ENROLLMENT FEE + SCHOLARSHIPS

The only fee for Loveworks Afterschool Programming is an enrollment fee of $99 each semester, billed once student is accepted. There is no fee to apply. While there is a one-time enrollment fee of $99 per semester, the program is greatly below the cost due to the generosity of individual donors, community foundations, grants, companies, and families who believe in our mission. Find out how you can be a contributor here. 

We believe a dollar sign should never stand in the way of a student’s success and offer scholarships based off of need. Please reach out to Carolyn Le at carolyn@loveworksleadership.org for more information. 

Ready to get started?

It is best for students to complete the application with a parent or guardian since questions are directed to both adults and students. Please allow 15-30 minutes to complete the application. We suggest that you carefully consider each question and respond in complete sentences.

Our staff reviews each application before a student is accepted to start the program. These applications help us to better know the students we are serving. Once accepted and the enrollment fee is paid, students along with a parent/guardian must attend an orientation meeting before starting.
