Future Stars was created to help students reach their full potential in academics and athletics. The organization supports students with mentoring, financial awareness, training, and school-related resources that are often stumbling block for school advancement.The organization primarily serves underprivileged students who have been identified by school officials as inner city and those students who have a desire to learn computer technology and/or a desire to play intercollegiate sports.Qualifying students will receive an Educational/Individual Life Plan (EILP) that will be specifically created to meet their needs. A mentor will work with the student on a regular basis to ensure that realistic goals are set and met within the scheduled time frame. Ultimately, each student will achieve visible improve academically and/or athletically up to and beyond college enrollment. This program differs from others because the dedicated staff members who work with the students use the strengths-based model of encouragement and consistency.
Future Stars does an excellent job of making STEM accessible and relatable to all. I appreciate the work that they do, and it makes me feel good to know that my donations support a community that really needs the support in this area.
