Friends of PUSH

Since 2019, OLLI at UNT and the UNT Retiree Association have partnered with UNT’s PUSH program to offer potlucks, game nights, and more for the incredible students who benefit from its services. It’s been our pleasure to work with the PUSH staff, led by UNT’s Foster Care Liaison Officer Brenda Sweeten, on these events.

Friends of Push Foster Care Alumni Program

Going forward, we are working to strengthen this partnership and create new opportunities for members to support PUSH students. Each semester, we will continue to offer social events that bring our members and students together in fun, engaging ways. Additionally, Friends of PUSH will connect lifelong learners with PUSH staff so that they can support students more directly and sustainably through financial assistance, hot meals, and more.

To get involved in this new initiative, we invite you to fill out our Friends of PUSH interest form below. By submitting this form, you are granting us permission to share your contact information with the staff who operate the PUSH program on campus. However, your name can be removed from this list at any time by reaching out to us.

We are excited to continue developing this program, and we hope you will choose to participate and make a difference in these students' lives.
