Youth volunteering for neighborhood cleanup at Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service

We must empower our young people to reach their fullest potential, so that they are prepared when the “baton” is passed to them. Our goal is not to ‘fix’ youth, but to develop them. The Crispus Attucks Rising STARS (Striving To Achieve Remarkable Success) Youth and Family Program provides many after-school and summer educational, recreational, and social responsibility opportunities for youth 5 to 18 years old. All youth participate in:

  1. Weekly Life Skills classes that provide gender and age appropriate empowerment and skills
  2. Volunteer a minimum of 25 hours per year of community service
  3. Maintain honor roll or participate in homework help or tutoring
  4. Optional after-school and summer activities that include:
