Medalcraft Mint tassel medallion

Our opportunity: Create a keepsake for young people at risk

The traditional school setting isn’t for every young person, but that doesn’t mean they don’t value an education and the job opportunities that come with it. Operation Fresh Start (OFS), a non-profit organization based in Madison, Wisconsin, asked Medalcraft Mint to design a special medallion that its clients who earn a high school diploma can wear on their cap tassels and keep as a memory of their accomplishment.

OFS programs offer opportunities for clients ages 16-24 to complete their high school diploma or obtain industry certifications so they can continue on to higher education and/or self-sustaining employment.

“I was very impressed with the way Medalcraft Mint’s artists made our logo and the text so readable on the tassel medallion,” says Jody Weyers, OFS’s development director. “Our young people are loving these medallions. We had one graduate who accidentally lost his and came back a few days later with sad eyes, asking if he could have another one. It was evidence that the medallion means a lot to them.”

Students who earn their high school diploma can walk in commencement ceremonies at their home school if they choose, but the timing isn’t always right for that to happen. As an alternative, OFS conducts its own commencement so every client who earns a diploma can have this experience.

“The tassel medallion from Medalcraft Mint really elevated our little graduation ceremonies,” Weyers says. “It’s something they can keep and be proud of the work they’ve done on themselves as well as earning their diploma.”
