Operation Save Our Sons understands that with all young men face in a world polarized by class, race, and impoverished communities, it is imperative that they are exposed and guided both through instruction and modeling principles that have been proven. These principles are provided through a variety of methods to the young men so that in the end they will desire to fulfill their present and future potential by choosing life over death. The value of this principle based approach is that the missing link of character to success is offered and the chance to mature in a healthy way is extended.
Operation Save Our Sons is committed then to a process that promotes a set of values that encourages RESPECT, POSITIVE THINKING, and WISE CHOICES. As the young men are exposed to positive role models, a variety of learning opportunities and for some employment opportunities, we believe they will strive to live morally accountable lives governed by a strong commitment to what protects ALL lives. Operation Save Our Sons then seeks to empower each young man to believe in themselves, and to pursue the highest standard of existence possible.
words from our founder
year to date
this year's goal
Your Involvement Directly Impact The Statistics
We intend to adequately prepare boys for better life skills that will increase the number of graduating seniors, encourage post-secondary education, and promote both job training and armed forces entrance. These concepts will in turn reduce arrest and incarceration (both which have a dramatic effect on tax payers), as well as relieve additional economic burdens imposed on our communities in regards to the criminal justice system.
Your Level Of Commitment Will Improve The Statistics
"Operation Save Our Sons has served as the ideal combination of training and mentorship for young boys as they strive to achieve their academic goals and develop positive interpersonal relationships."
