Operation Hero

A mentoring program started on Fort Bragg in March 2000 that not only improves self-esteem and grades, but also allows children to find there are “heroes” inside each of them. The program, which runs for 10 weeks three times a year, targets children from 6 – 12 years of age that are experiencing temporary difficulty in school, either socially or academically. Referred by teachers, parents or school officials, the bi-weekly sessions provide after school homework assistance and mentoring in a small group.

Operation Hero services the families of Fort Bragg, NC in partnership with the following schools. Please contact your child’s school for more information about the program or to make a referral.
