ORGANIZATION: Be the Star You Are

The Teen Writing & Radio Program
Founder, Cynthia Brian, with teen volunteers.

One of the most fun and rewarding volunteer positions is as a Teen STAR Book Reviewer. We invite volunteers age 10 and above who like to read to join our Teen STAR Book Review team. Adults are also welcome to become a reviewer. Here's how it works:

Volunteers may read most any book, then write an honest one-page book review on how they liked or disliked the book. These reviews offer parents, librarians, teachers, guardians, and other people an idea of what books would be good for what age level.

Book reviews will be published at their site and also at http://www.BTSYA.org.

Reviews need to include your original thoughts on book content as well as opinions on whether the book is fun, entertaining, educational, or boring.

Guidelines and information will be sent when you request to be a volunteer STAR Teen Book Reviewer.

For more information or to join the team, email: info@bethestaryouare.org

Thank you. Keep on reading and writing! We look forward to working with you to help in increasing literacy and positive messages through this extraordinary book review program.

Mission Statement

The mission of Be the Star You Are! a non-profit corporation is to improve literacy, increase positive media messages, and provide tools for daily living by empowering women, families, and youth. We grow people!


Be the Star You Are!(r), a 501 (c)(3) collects, commissions, and distributes empowering books, audio, video, art, and music. Recipients include youth and teen groups, women, shelters and support groups, seniors, job re-entry, treatment and recovery programs. The world is bombarded daily with negative messages. Believing that information infused with inspiration has the power to transform and change lives, Be the Star You Are! is a positive message media library offering choices and hope. Be the Star You Are! also broadcasts two radio programs, StarStyle-Be the Star You Are!, a lifestyle show Wednesdays, 4-5pm PT and Express Yourself!, a young adult program where teens talk and the world listens, Sundays, 3 PM PT, both on on Voice America Network/Empowerment Channel. http://www.BetheStarYouAreRadio.com.

Be the Star You Are!(r) makes a difference in communities by offering positive "edutainment", education combined with entertainment.

Please note that we will send every potential volunteer a questionnaire which must be completed before any position can be assigned. Minors under the age of 18 must have parental permission.

We are seeking only enthusiastic, responsible volunteers. If your only interest is getting community service, we are not a match for you.

Thanks for your interest in Be the Star You Are!

We look forward to working and growing with you.
