Our Stories

Meet Evan:  Evan is currently an eighth-grade student and has been attending the Jamestown Middle School Operation Homework program for three years. Evan is on the autism spectrum, which makes it challenging for him to socialize and pay attention to his classes. However, with the help of the Operation Homework teachers and social-emotional learning strategies, Evan was able to surpass his personal goal of achieving the A/B honor roll throughout his 7th-grade year. By the end of the year, Evan had made it to the A honor roll and is now more engaged with his peers, and even offers help to his teachers. Evan is a role model student who shows that Operation Xcel is a place where learners are motivated to excel in every aspect of their lives. By providing financial support, you can help us ensure that we can help other students excel, just like Evan!
