Crews

Think committees, but way more passionate and action-oriented. Crews are our way of organizing and executing initiatives in a wide variety of areas. The projects carried out by Crews are meant to strengthen the sense of place in Tulsa and make our city better for all living and visiting here.

Anyone interesting in getting involved in TYPROS is welcome to join a crew that speaks to your passions, talents or budding interests.

If you see a crew you’d like to check out, visit TYPROS calendar for more details about crew meeting locations and times.
