S .T.A.R.S. Community Development Corporation is dedicated to uplifting disadvantaged communities in Las Vegas by disrupting at-risk lifestyles and helping individuals and families become empowered and successful. Its primary focus is mentoring youth to prevent teen pregnancy and ensure high school graduation. S.T.A.R.S. (Striving To Achieve Real Success) targets middle and high school students. Goal Oriented and Family Engaged Youth Program Each student enters the program with specific written goals and S.T.A.R.S. creates benchmarks for six-week, six-month, one-year and five-year time frames. Both the summer camp, Saturday and the after school mentoring program is designed to engage not only individual students but their families as well. This holistic approach results in deeper, more sustained emotional investment on the part of students, reinforcing the positive attitudes and behavior that lead to better academic performance and improved family and peer relationships. Involving their families amplifies the benefits because the more engaged parents are in their children’s academic and social development, the more effective outside mentoring and support can be. Involving the whole family can also help eliminate logistical barriers to participation.
