Shining Star Celebration

 

    

Starfish Initiative cultivates academically promising teens, facing unearned adversity to become college-educated leaders by pairing them with mentors and providing programming to support college preparation, career exploration and character development.

Starfish Scholars face bright prospects through the comprehensive Starfish Experience, a four-year path out of poverty for

Indianapolis teens who join our program as rising 9th graders. The results of the Starfish program demonstrate the power of mentoring and Starfish programming.
