Review for Starfish Initiative, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I think that the Starfish Initiative is such a needed non-profit in the Indianapolis area. The number of high academic achieving, low income students in this area is astonishing. During my year of volunteering with Starfish I have met so many scholars who are the translators for their family, the tutors, and caretakers for their siblings and at such young ages. All the while, being so driven to be a successful student, oftentimes involved also in clubs and sports. The parents want the absolute best for their kids and the opportunity for another positive adult to assist in the high school process is welcomed and encouraged. The way that the staff work to make the best possible scholar/mentor matches just shows their dedication to both their volunteers and program participants. I look forward to continuing to volunteer my time to Starfish.
