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 highrisk, 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 will have a greater chance of breaking the intergenerational cycle of poverty, drug use, disease, depression and violence. Star Kids serves children from the following communities:
Newport County, Rhode Island
Fall River, Massachusetts
New Bedford, Massachusetts.
