Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Economic Development, Education, Literacy, Primary & Elementary Schools, Remedial Reading & Encouragement, Urban & Community Economic Development

Mission: The Rising Star Collaborative Coalition, along with partnerships; seeks to amend and solve the dramatic societal change and shift in education, literacy, health and wellness, the arts, humanities, media, STEM/ technology, community service, entrepreneurship, social and economic development for the growth and sustainability of youths in disadvantaged inner city and urban communities

Results: In 2015 thru 2017 tutors were brought in to assist 2nd-6th graders with academic tutoring, STAAR Prep, and the After-school component (e.g. critical thinking activities, mentoring, health & wellness, etiquette, community and parent workshops & etc). Our success: Students started the 1st semester with C's, D's & F's and ended up on A/B or All A's Honor Roll during the remaining school semesters. All 5th graders either received academic excellence on STAAR or scores in the 1560-1600's. 3rd and 4th graders also excelled on STAAR. Several students also placed in the Science Fair. HISTORY In Spring of 2015, as concerned parents, we volunteered and purchased STAAR material and tutored 15 3rd graders for the STAAR all 14 students passed except for 1.

The Rising Star Collaborative Coalition has impacted several low income students in the 3rd ward and southeast areas of Houston. These students have excelled far and beyond academically from the start of the program. Need more funding, serving more students and eventually expanding to other low income communities.
