In 2012, Operation Aware of Oklahoma created A.R.T. (Awareness. Reached. Together.) The A.R.T. program pairs Tulsa-area students with local artists to create one-of-a-kind, original art pieces. Over the course of six weeks, the students and their mentoring artists work together to design and create their works of art. The finished pieces are then auctioned off at our Gala to raise funds for local prevention education.
Operation Aware of Oklahoma provides important prevention education services for young people in local schools to help them make positive life choices. We teach students about goal setting, friends, bullying, relationships, and the risks of drug use.
Proceeds from our annual fundraising gala as well as our annual golf tournament provide scholarships for school participation in our signature eight-week education program and allow us to expand our reach to more schools in Northeast Oklahoma.
