Operation Dream is a nonprofit organization and mentoring program that works with young boys to help them become leaders in their communities.
Founded in 2006, Operation Dream builds leadership, academic, and social skills among at-risk youth through an peer-mentoring program.
It serves primarily boys whose environment puts them at particular risk and for whom existing organizations are out of reach, according to its website.
