Be A Part Of The Transformation
The STARS Mentoring Project was started by Antioch Community Church in 2002. Together with a network of local churches and nonprofit organizations, the STARS team and more than 269 volunteers meet weekly in schools across Waco to provide academic support and positive, encouraging mentoring relationships to more than 530 students. Two programs make up the STARS project — Book Club and Friday Club. Book Club pairs local volunteers with elementary students. They meet once a week during lunch where they take turns reading as the volunteer guides discussion and provides encouragement to young readers. Friday Club provides a safe, positive and fun afterschool environment to students of all ages. The STARS Mentoring Project works to positively affect the future for individual students and the entire community. For more information, visit starsmentoringproject.com.
