OUR MISSION

Future Stars exists to provide opportunities for inner city youth to achieve their goals in higher education with a focus on technology.

Future Stars, Inc was founded in 2008 by Shereka Jackson with the core belief that, without exception, every child is a star. She truly believes in making sure that our youth have an opportunity to be the best version of themselves, so she built Future Stars to help students reach their goal of pursuing higher education.

We go to the kids. We provide STEM education, trainings, and mentorship by partnering with the community centers and the community in which they live. The organization supports students with mentoring, financial awareness, training, and scholarship searches for school advancement. We do whatever the family needs; we are their BFFS!
