Local artists mentor and collaborate with students to create an art piece that is sold during the live auction at the Operation Art Gala.
Operation Aware empowers youth to make the right choices. Studies reveal that people who cultivate themselves through hobbies, like art, are less likely to suffer from anxieties, rage, depression and other negative feelings. Kids face a lot of choices. We help them make the right ones. We believe in celebrating young people – and helping them develop the knowledge and life skills to practice responsible behavior. Operation Aware programs teach students the importance of respect and dignity – for themselves, for fellow classmates and teachers, for their family and for the community.

What is Operation Aware?
Operation Aware’s program delivers prevention education in the classroom, beginning in pre-kindergarten and following students through high school. Our educators teach students how their decisions today about drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and relationships can have lifelong consequences. We provide students with techniques to help them resist negative influence and instead, make positive decisions that guide them to their long term goals.
Our results are powerful; young people who are equipped with the necessary skills needed to be strong, confident leaders of tomorrow.
Is Operation Aware in your child's school? If not, why not? The social impact from alcohol and drugs affect Oklahoman’s from all social classes. We work diligently to ensure we reach as many students as possible and attempt to accommodate each and every school, regardless of budget limitations, by providing scholarships to those that express interest in our program.
