Operation Progress is unique in its long-term programming that spans across a child’s development and over the course of many years. Our long-term model allows Operation Progress to build relationships with youth and parents while creating stable and consistent support systems that aid in their positive growth, development, and grit. Through our Safety and Support Pillar, we provide a safety net of support through committed LAPD and civilian mentors, parents, and staff.
If children are given the necessary tools to succeed, they will achieve beyond their wildest dreams. My goal, through Operation Progress, is to help build a useful foundation for these children, so they can succeed in life despite their current circumstances.
Giving hope is like giving breath to life. That’s what Operation Progress does, gives hope where none exists.
Having the opportunity to succeed is everything. That is the essence of Operation Progress, and the key to the future of our children and our communities.
The students’ energy and curiosity are boundless. Operation Progress and the career days inspire and shape these students’ futures—one of these very students may ultimately play a role in crafting Los Angeles’ skyline.
