About the Star Kids Scholarship Program

 

Star Kids was founded in 2000 to provide educational opportunities to low-income, at-risk students who have a parent with a history of incarceration and/or substance abuse. Our students in grades K – 12 are provided tuition scholarships, and funding for essential supports such as books, tutoring, uniforms, transportation, after-school programs, summer camps and mentoring.  Our goal is for each child to graduate from high school, be in a better position to pursue post-secondary education, and ultimately break the intergenerational  cycle of drug use, poverty and incarceration.  Our current high school graduation rate is 93% and 90% of our high school graduates pursue post-secondary education.
