Operation Hero

An an organization, we understand how challenging military life can be, especially on young children. Between deployments, frequent moves and adjusting to new schools, kids go through a lot. As a result, they may experience feelings of self-doubt or low self-esteem, putting their academic engagement and performance in jeopardy.

Operation Hero is a FREE after-school program designed with these children in mind. The program is designed to help military kids (grades 2-5) get back on track in school and at home. Operation Hero provides a safe environment where these children can express their emotions, receive academic and emotional support, and connect with peers who are experiencing the same challenges. 

Program Details: 

  • Open to children grades 2-5 currently attending Freedom Elementary School on Fort Sill
  • Children are referred by school personnel and/or child's parent
  • Program meets after-school on Tuesday's and Thursday's for 10 weeks
  • Program is 100% FREE
  • Snack, homework assistance with our certified staff provided
