Find Your Future Summer Education Camp


2023 Find Your Future Summer Education Camp

July 23-28, 2023

The Find Your Future Summer Education Camp is a program hosted by the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education at the University of Oklahoma. This program is designed to recruit and prepare high school students from underserved populations who are interested in becoming educators in order to address the critical shortage of educators from diverse backgrounds in the state of Oklahoma and across the country. Students who participate will be encouraged to reflect upon their own educational experiences and develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships with others in their schools and in society.

This program is offered at no cost to participants.





  • A student from underserved populations who are currently enrolled in high school (preference given to students who will be juniors or seniors)?
  • A student interested in exploring the possibility of a career in education who is academically motivated with plans to attend college after graduation (no minimum GPA requirement)?

Then the Find Your Future Summer Education Camp may be right for you!
Find Your Future is open to anyone desiring to participate, regardless of race, gender or socioeconomic class.
