STAR KIDS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Empowering at-risk children who have a parent with a history of incarceration and/or severe substance abuse to reach their potential through education.

The mission of the Star Kids Scholarship Program is to provide educational opportunities in the form of tuition aid to effective, non-public schools, uniforms, after-school and summer programs, tutoring and mentoring for those high-risk, low-income children who have a parent with a history of incarceration and/or substance abuse. Children are typically enrolled in the program between kindergarten and Grade 4.

Star Kids’ goal for each child is to graduate from high school. By completing high school and hopefully going on to higher education, these children have a greater chance of breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty, drug use, disease, depression and violence.
