Operation Exodus is a faith-based organization located in Washington Heights, NYC. At Exodus, our goal is to form transformational relationships with our students (K-12) through various ways including volunteering in academic support, Saturday mentoring program, summer volunteer opportunities, or committing to an internship.
Operation Exodus launches NYC Latino Youth to college and lives of excellence through educational opportunities and transformational relationships.
Children & Youth
Communities in Need
Our volunteers make an impact each week in the lives of kids by being a positive, consistent, and committed role model.
Making Grants To Fund Programs
Our funding helps cover direct expenses related to the mentoring and tutoring programs, enrichment field trips and activities for the youth, as well as rental costs for the program.
Training And Consulting
We've funded Operation Exodus staff development through the NYC Leadership Fellows program, extensive board development, and communications-related projects.
Having been a mentor at Operation Exodus for over 10 years, I've mentored every grade from kindergarten boys to high school young adults, I have gone on countless trips week after week, and year after year. Throughout my time, what keeps the engine going for me is ONE PRIMARY HOPE: that these kids will someday know that the love that I have given them throughout my time simply PALES IN COMPARISON to the love that Jesus Christ has for them and for all of us. And that somehow, through my actions, they are drawn to him all the more.
Cortney, Volunteer Mentor
As the challenges of the pandemic continue, we decided to focus on biblical hope and how our affiliate partners remain beacons of hope in our city.
Grantmaking is one of the four cornerstones of our model (which also includes volunteer mobilization, capacity building, and collaborative networks). Every June, we give Direct grants to many of our affiliates so they can plan their programs for the coming year.
This year, we launched a few fitness and fundraising program called the Miles of Hope Challenge! Starting in March, our network was encouraged to run, bike, walk, etc., between affiliate sites across our city!
