Organization raising funds for college students with IDD

In 2018, five students who dreamed of going to college in Oklahoma had their wish granted by an innovative program funded by LeadLearnLive. The organization partnered with Northeastern State University to begin the RiverHawks Scholar Program which was the first inclusive college program in Oklahoma for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. That program is now in its third year with 17 students who are pursuing their dream of attending college.

Now the organization wishes to expand these programs - and serve more students - by partnering with Oklahoma State University. LeadLearnLive’s mission is to establish, raise awareness and support degree and/or certificate inclusive post-secondary education programs for students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities in Oklahoma.
