KFHA Operation Turnaround Scholarship Initiative

Since 1983, Serving Our Community


KFHA Operation Turnaround celebrates the success of students who employ winning strategies in their lives that place them on a pathway to academic and social success.  We provide awards, events, mentoring services, college financial-planning information and scholarships to deserving students from the greater Kendall area.  Many of our graduating seniors continue to work with us throughout their college years.

Since 1983, the Kendall Federation Operation Turnaround Scholarship Initiative has sponsored the Operation Turnaround Awards Students? Luncheon.  As a Miami-Dade Public Schools ?Dade Partner?, Operation Turnaround honors students from over 43 public schools within the greater Kendall Community every year.

One student from each elementary, middle and senior high school is chosen for this prestigious award.  To qualify, these students must have demonstrated a significant turnaround in their social, physical, emotional or academic lives.  For every Operation Turnaround student, there is a unique story to be told.

Operation Turnaround is run with a 100% volunteer staff.  Your generous, tax-deductible gift will enable us to provide an awards luncheon for middle school and high school honorees, plus scholarships and grants for graduating seniors who are headed for college or other post-secondary institutions.  Please help us to provide an awards luncheon that these students will never forget!
