Operation Achievement 2014!


Are you looking for a fun way to get involved on campus?

Do you need a way to fill your resume?

Do you like snacks?

Do you have classes that require volunteer hours?

If you answered YES to any of the questions above then Operation Achievement is for you!

Operation Achievement is a mentoring program that works with the 3 middle schools in Georgetown- Forbes, Benold, and Tippit. Our program is a fun combination of mentoring, civic engagement, and exciting enrichment activities.

 As a volunteer mentor with Operation Achievement you would commit to mentoring a middle school student on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 4-6pm. The middle school students are bussed to Southwestern, so all you have to do is show up to Olin 305! There are ALWAYS snacks, and it is a great way to meet some amazing people, while making a huge impact on the life of a middle schooler.

If Operation Achievement sounds like something you would like to get involved with, mark your calendar for Thursday, September 11 at 6:00pm in Olin 302. This will be a fun and informative training session, where you will learn more about the program. There will be free Chipotle burritos, door prizes, snacks, and much more.

If you have any questions about Operation Achievement, feel free to e-mail Jeanette Montalvo at, or you can always stop by the OA sign-up table outside the Commons on Tuesday-Thursday of this week and the following week!

Remember- The first OA sessions are September 16-18th in Olin 305. See you there!
