Oklahoma Coaches Mentoring Challenge 

September 1, 2018 - August 1, 2019

An estimated one in three Oklahoma youths is in need of a mentor - someone to listen, to encourage and to set a positive example. 

Hundreds of coaches and mentoring organizations across the state are responding by participating in the Coaches Mentoring Challenge, a campaign to encourage Oklahomans to mentor young people in their communities.

The challenge has grown steadily over the past few years, gaining the endorsement of more than 800 Oklahoma coaches in 2017-18 and helping to spread the word about mentoring through news, social media and word of mouth. 

Now we're calling on Oklahoma coaches and mentoring organizations to make this our most succesful campaign yet to promote mentoring. 

How You Can Support the Mentoring Challenge:

  • IF YOU ARE A COACHsign up here to endorse the call for new mentors. Participating coaches will be entered for a drawing for OU, OSU and other sports memorabilia. Past participating coaches are required to re-register each year.

  • IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MENTOR, contact a mentoring organization in your community to volunteer. If you cannot find a mentoring organization in our directory, contact Beverly Woodrome, at bwoodrome@ofe.org for assistance.

  • TELL YOUR FRIENDS about the Coaches Mentoring Challenge and encourage them to get involved!

If you are interested in registering your mentoring program as a participant or learning about starting a mentoring program in your community, contact Beverly Woodrome at (405) 590-4063 or email bwoodrome@ofe.org.
