Event Description:
This event is open to Active Centurions Only.

Operation Breakthrough is one of the largest single-site daycare centers in the state of Missouri, caring for over 600 children each day. 85% of these children come from families living below the poverty level. Established in 1971 the goal was to “break through” poverty. Sadly, the need today is even greater than before. One way to increase awareness about the hardships faced by the children at Operation Breakthrough is to offer bus tours of the neighborhoods where they live. Dubbed, “The City You Never See,” this tour will show you places, just minutes from the Country Club Plaza, where families struggle for basic necessities. Along the way, you’ll meet courageous and resilient parents and community leaders who will share their personal experiences with you.

Each tour begins and ends at Operation Breakthrough and includes five to six stops at various points in the surrounding neighborhoods. The program lasts for about an hour and a half.
Participants will ride a yellow school bus that can accommodate up to 42 adults.

Please know that the bus tour includes explicit testimony on such topics as domestic violence, substance abuse, and prostitution.
