What We Do

NorthStar's mission to change the lives of young men through programming that supports, challenges, inspires and instills a life rooted in education, self-discipline and service to the community through our three areas of program focus: Academics, Adventure & Athletics.

We serve boys in grades 3-12 and our activities throughout the summer and during the academic year include STEM & arts programming, rock climbing, robotics, culinary classes, gardening, photography, college visits, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, canoeing, woodworking, cycling and more!

Every gift counts when you're investing in the future of a NorthStar student:

$15 purchases a pack of new socks or underwear to stock our onsite clothing center, Antonio's Locker
$30 purchases a fully stocked, backpack complete with school supplies and a water bottle for one student
$50 covers the cost for one student to enroll in NorthStar Athletics programming
$125 sponsors one student for one week of our daytime summer program, Camp NorthStar
$300 covers one fuel up for our van fleet to transport students to NorthStar from about 30 area schools
