The 2020 Shining Star Celebration will celebrate 17 years of championing Marion County teens.

Starfish Initiative knows that mentoring is a catalyst for change. We believe that mentoring is a key factor in improving educational attainment and the future of today’s youth. The commitment mentors make to coach, encourage, support, and champion others benefits us all. Each year, Starfish recognizes the value of those who support initiatives that foster mentoring. The 2020 Mentor of the Year Award will be recognized at Starfish’s annual Shining Star Celebration. The 2020 Shining Star Celebration will be held at the Indianapolis Public Library on Thursday, October 8th at 7:00 pm.
