OkcMEthrive, an initiative to help low-income, first-generation college students attend college is a district-wide effort to help high school students not only apply to college, but to learn how to seek financial assistance, academic health, and to graduate from a university. The OkcMEthrive initiative will consist of various current first-generation college students who will serve as advisors to high school students. Not only will the advisors help the high school students make efforts to prepare for college entrance, but they will also counsel their femtees/mentees/themtees on the struggles of being a first-generation college student and some of the adversity that they may face. OkcMEthrive will not only help countless students pursue their dream, but it will also allow them to create a path for not only themselves but their communities and families as well.
