Inspired by First Star? Help us help abused and neglected youth! First Star is a 501(c)(3) public charity and relies on support from individuals, corporations and private foundations. Even $5 makes a difference.
Support First Star
University-run First Star Academies offer foster youth the opportunity to attend life-changing college-readiness programs. Our policy, advocacy and research influence how our government and courts take care of abused and neglected children and youth. These are big jobs – can you help?
Attend an Event
We want to meet you! Our events are a wonderful way to get to know our students and staff. Come celebrate with us and see first-hand how First Star works. You’re invited!
Let’s stay in touch. Sign up for updates and we’ll send you news about abused and neglected children and foster youths, inspiring success stories, ways to get involved, and information about upcoming events.
Become a Volunteer Big Brother Big Sister
Volunteers are needed to be matched with a Little Brother or Little Sister who is in the Foster Care system and have fun outings in the community twice a month for 2 – 4 hours at a time. We are especially looking for volunteers who would be interested in mentoring a current 9th grade student and encouraging high school success and college readiness. You get to be a kid again while you give a child the invaluable gift of friendship.
