Addressing the needs of educationally at-risk young people 

Operation Newstart is an innovative re-engagement program for young people aged 14-16 attending Victorian State Schools who are at significant educational risk. Many are at risk of expulsions, have failed to attend school regularly and are at risk of not completing their secondary education.
