Mission Statement

The Stacey Toran Foundation supports leadership, education and character-building programs to prepare youn men and women for higher education, and to instill in them a sense of responsibility and service.

Description

The Stacey Toran Foundation (STF) was created to honor the memory of Stacey Toran, a Broad Ripple High School alum who was a stand out athlete at Notre Dame and played in the NFL. We have partnered with Broad Ripple Magnet High School to provide leadership and character development programs for at-risk youth in Indianapolis Public Schools.

STF offers after-school programs for students in grades 6-12. The STF Mentoring Program is for 6-8th grade students and matches each student with a positive mentor to work on academic and social skills, this program also focuses on skills needed to graduate from high school and prepare the students for higher education. Weekly curriculum also includes goal setting, leadership development and decision-making.

Project STAR (Students Thinking and Acting Responsibly) is for students in grades 9-10. This leadership and character development program works to engage students and focuses on conflict resolution, drug and violence prevention, abstinence and peer mediation.

Learn-Do-Teach is an intensive leadership development program designed for participants who have successfully completed Project Star and maintain a high GPA. Students receive leadership training, complete a service learning project and serve as mentors for middle-school students. Students also prepare for SAT and ACT tests, receive help with college applications and financial aid searches.

STF also hosts a summer program called Camp FOCUS. This 3 week camp helps 6-9th grade students transition into high school. It includes intensive science and math assistance as well as leadership development. Participants go on local college tours and also engage in traditional summer camp activities.
