ATTENTION ACTIVE-DUTY MILITARY FAMILIES--Operation HERO is back!

We all know how important SOCIAL CONNECTION is for all of us! Do you know why it is so IMPORTANT FOR OUR KIDS? Connecting with friends helps lower anxiety and depression, helps regulate emotions and leads to higher self-esteem and empathy toward others. Kids learn to effectively communicate and it even helps to improve their immune systems! Do you know or have a child from and active-duty military family who is currently in grades 2-5 that would be interested in learning some new skills and connecting with other military kids in Hampton Roads? Then you want to be part of the next Virtual Operation Hero sessions which begin FEBRUARY 1, 2021!

This no-cost, 8-week program features videos, activities and weekly 'OpChats' with other military kids. The program pairs one Mentor with a small group of school-aged students to foster connection and growth. Each week, videos will post in our Google Classroom for students to work through at their own pace. Mentor-facilitated groups meet online each Thursday, 4-5 p.m. with optional Fun Friday chats each week for interactive games and FUN activities! An Op-Guide and all needed supplies and materials are provided to participants.

Registration closes for this FREE program is Friday, January 15. Please complete and submit an application by clicking on the link below. Once participants are notified, they may pick up their free kit at our Regional Office (1465 Lakeside Road, Virginia Beach) or at their home school. Limited space is available for each session.

Submit your application here: https://bit.ly/3oYEdZA

In this eight-week session, we'll be covering topics like responsibility, honesty, and teamwork. You can find out more about the Operation Hero program on our website: https://bit.ly/38gZ5EK
