Rising Stars After-School Program

Is committed to offering a daily variety of arts, crafts, drama, sports, cooking, creative play, and much more. We assist with homework help and tutoring as well as have a dedicated space where children can enjoy quiet reading and education activities.

Our unique program emphasizes Bible-based character development, and peer problem solving, giving kids the tools they need to become successful students, with strong inter-personal skills.



Variety Arts & Crafts

Each participant is assigned a Supportive Case Manager who will assist them in developing and completing an individualized goal plan. Common goals include graduating High School, finding a part time job, and relocation.

Assistance with Homework

Each interested participant is matched with a Mentor. Mentors are expected to engage the participant within the community, provide a social outlet, model responsible behavior, and serve as additional support to the teen.

Bible Character development

The Real Life Issues Support Group (RLI) was formed for youth to have a venue to discuss issues that concern their everyday life. The curriculum emphasizes social skills and is designed to prepare young people to care about themselves, their family, and their community. During the school year this group normally meets weekly on Tuesday nights.

Peer Problem Solving

Participants attending RLI and meeting Case Management goals earn boutique bucks. Along with clothing and hygiene products, participants are able to receive items such as changing tables, car seats, diapers, as they become available.

Mission Statement

Our mission is changing kids’ lives through relationships, life coaching, leadership development, and a living faith in Jesus Christ.
