Join me in showing love to our member James who graduated Operation Work and is moving onto the next chapter of his life but will always have the support of his MSC and Operation Dream Family!!
James first started Operation Dream 10 years ago. He was enrolled in the annual year program up until age 14. At that time, he applied and was accepted into the Operation Work program. There he showed exemplary work ethics and leadership skills. As a result, he was hired as a teachers assistant as well as bus monitor. James graduated from the Operation Work program in May of last year. He also graduated from high school the same year with a GPA of 3.7. He applied to several colleges and was accepted into the University of Wisconsin, Madison with a major in Journalism and a minor in African American Studies. James is very passionate about writing, helping others, and fashion design. James attributes his success in high school to the assistance/support he received from his member support coach as well as the Operation Dream staff. He stressed that if not for the persistence and presence in School of his Member Support Coach; it would have been difficult to stay focused.
James expressed the difference that the support from Operation Dream, to assist in stabilizing his home and family life made it possible for James to fully concentrate on his schoolwork. #SuccessStory #Part1 #OperationDream #OperationWork #LevelUp #DropWordsOfEncouragment #ittakesavillage #OntoTheNext #collegelife

Today’s small group discussion was surrounding holistic health and we are yet again blown away by the Leadership and Love our members displayed. When asking members what are ways we can share words of encouragement, hold each other accountable or simply check in with each other they immediately took out their phones to make sure every member has each others number. This speaks to the brotherhood our members build inside the walls of Operation Dream and outside. #OperationDream #OperationWork #HolisticHealth #BrotherHood #ittakesavillage #LoveAboveAll #mentalhealthmatters

Our members worked on building Trust with one another through today’s team builder. We had two teams and each member had to direct a team mate through our office style obstacle course while one member kept their eyes closed until they made it to the finish line. It was so cool to see members cheering each other on, using communication to make sure no one bumped into any of the obstacles or each other. Today was filled with smiles, laughter and some yelling out of excitement 🤣🤣

P.S. No office furniture was hurt during this exercise 😂
