JAMES, Inc. (Just About Mothers Excelling in School), Inc. presents a Summer Parents Academy (SPA) program focused on encouraging personal growth and economic goal-setting in June of each year. Set to a maximum of 30 diverse Tulsa-area expectant and/or parenting adolescent families, the program is offered at a centrally-located, easily accessible location in downtown Tulsa.

The 16-day research-based program curriculum includes presentations and activities to spur self-knowledge and understanding and to thoughtfully consider and improve interpersonal relationships (including parenting) while encouraging educational and economic aspirations. Technology, The Arts, and Entrepreneurship have been chosen as the focal points for skill-building workshops and field learning experiences. These atypical focal areas were identified to inspire participantsí creativity and engagement. An important feature will be the opportunities to learn and hone life skills, then translate those skills toward income-producing activities and businesses.
