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 ages 5 to 18 years old.

All youth participate in:

  1. Weekly Life Skills classes that provide gender and age appropriate empowerment and skills
  2. A minimum of 25 hours of community service each year
  3. Homework help or tutoring if they do not maintain honor roll
  4. Optional after-school and summer activities that include:
  • Annual Cultural Thanksgiving Celebration
  • Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service
  • Study Parties
  • Black and Hispanic Trivia Nights
  • Sheriff’s After School Fitness & Tutoring
  • Youth Showcase – Poetry and Short Stories
  • Workshops on Self-esteem, Study Skills, and more
  • Career Planning
  • Anti-Bullying Lessons
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Parent and Child Cafes
  • Careers Exploration
