Mission Statement

Starfish Initiative inspires, encourages, and prepares promising, economically disadvantaged students for college and career success. To achieve this goal, Starfish pairs economically disadvantaged high school students one-on-one with college-educated mentors.

Description

Starfish provides intensive one-on-one mentoring and coaching: Each Starfish Scholar is matched with an adult mentor who makes a two year commitment to meet with their Scholar every other week. These mentors serve as a "life or college coach" to keep Scholars working toward achievement of their goals - graduation from high school and from college. Thorough orientation and on-going mentor training enables mentors to form meaningful relationships with Scholars to enhance their success.
