What is Middle School Stars?
Middle School Stars is an after-school program for 6-8th grade students in the city of Pasadena. We provide a safe, welcoming space for middle school students to complete homework, ask questions, and engage with caring adults. In addition to homework help, students are encouraged to surpass grade-level competencies with the support and guidance of academic tutors.
Students participate in group mentoring, receive college counseling, and take fun excursions with their peers. The presence of parents and volunteers building assets alongside children is one of the program’s greatest strengths.

What is High School Stars?
High School Stars is a group mentoring program for 9-12th grade students in the city of Pasadena. We provide a safe, welcoming space for high school students to enjoy dinner and engage in informal conversations with caring adults.
After dinner, students transition to a more structured discussion on practicing healthy habits at home, school, and in life. Our holistic approach to group mentoring is supplemented by strategic academic planning and college counseling for each individual student. The collaborative partnerships that help make this program possible is evidence that teamwork does in fact make the dream work.
