Tyler Lockett and his “Light It Up Foundation” entered a five (5) year partnership with the Tulsa Public School in January 2020, initiating his Job Shadowing Program. All eight (8) Tulsa Public Schools and including Crossover Preparatory Academy in 2023 were participants. Each year twelve (12) students are selected from six (6) different Tulsa High Schools to participate in the program.

The program allowed students to travel to Seattle, Washington (home of the Seattle Seahawks) and be exposed to and shadow minorities and others in leadership positions such as medicine, business, kinesiology, IT, real estate, engineering, among others. Tyler and the “Light It Up Foundation” covered all expenses for the student, including one (1) parent, and a stipend for food and touring for both the student and parent.

The five (5) year program allowed sixty (60) students from the Tulsa Public Schools the opportunity to travel and be exposed to different professions that could affect their future. Additionally, each student received a scholarship ranging from five thousand ($5,000) to ten thousand ($10,000) to start their college education.
