Speaker Spotlight: Kirk Wester

Another speaker will address how to tie the community closer together while helping the vulnerable!

Kirk Wester is the Executive Director for Growing Together, a local neighborhood transformation initiative in Tulsa. Growing Together leads and plans collective actions from the resources provided by numerous organizations, residents, funders and stakeholders to change the trajectory of children in vulnerable neighborhoods. Growing Together focuses on the creation of three key components to their strategy: a strong education pipeline, mixed-income housing, and neighborhood vibrancy. Through their collective efforts in the Kendall-Whittier neighborhood and schools, they are beginning to see strong improvements in the outcomes of vulnerable children, demonstrating what it takes to expand this model throughout Tulsa’s most vulnerable neighborhoods.
