our pillars

The overarching goal of the 5 Pillars of Success is that our Scholars build character, social competency, leadership skills, and emotional intelligence, and that they graduate from college life-ready. Side by side with the long-term commitment of parents, Scholars, and organizations, Operation Progress is able to ensure fundamental educational opportunities, a sense of community, resiliency, safety, security, trust and life learning.
