Operation Hero is a free after-school program for military children in grades 2-8. It is designed to help these students address the unique challenges they face, such as frequent moves and deployments. Trained facilitators for Operation Hero create a safe environment for students to express emotions, receive academic and emotional support, and connect with peers experiencing the same challenges.
