Support futures

Become part of the OFS family, support our young adults!

Make a Donation. Make a Difference.

A gift to Operation Fresh Start helps provide programming that offers a path forward for young adults ages 16-24 to gain meaningful, supported work experience, earn their high school diploma or industry certifications, and continue on to higher education and/or self-sustaining employment.


Operation Fresh Start empowers emerging adults on a path to self-sufficiency through education, mentoring, and employment training.


All emerging adults ages 16–24 are assets in our community.


Community, Commitment, Empowerment, Equity, Work

Support the futures of young adults!

Your gift provides wraparound support for emerging adults in Dane County. In addition to providing education and job training opportunities, you’re helping to empower the personal development of each young person at OFS.
