2016_johnwolfkillheadshot-2Prior to joining CCAF, Wolfkill was the Executive Director of KIPP Tulsa College Preparatory in Tulsa, OK, a middle school that is part of the national network of 183 KIPP schools. Wolfkill completed his Master of Science degree in International and Intercultural Education and Development at the University of Southern California and became keenly interested in community development. He worked as an urban planner for the Watts Labor Community Action Committee
(Los Angeles, CA) and then became the associate director of the P.F. Bresee Foundation, a faith-based youth and family development center. He spent nearly seven years as the director of Administration and Donor Partnerships at the Tulsa Community Foundation, the largest community foundation in the country.

After learning that only one to two percent of Tulsa’s African American and Hispanic youth were graduating from high school prepared to begin college without remediation, he left the foundation to become executive director of KIPP Tulsa, an open-enrollment college-preparatory, public charter school, in 2011.
