Operation Fresh Start

  • Many OFS participants come to the OFS classroom having experienced failure in traditional schools.
  • OFS goal is to help students overcome fear and frustration they often feel toward school work.
  • OFS provides an individualized learning environment in which certified teachers and skilled tutors provide small group and one-on-one instruction.
  • The teacher/student ratio for most lessons is 1:5. For those studying the Basic Skills Curriculum, the ratio is 1:1.
  • Typically, OFS students spend 2-4 hours daily in the classroom and the remainder of the day on the service site.
