What We Do

NorthStar's mission is 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.

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 covers the purchase of boys socks & underwear to help stock our onsite clothing center, Antonio's Locker, where our students shop for new or gently used clothing for free

$30 can purchase and fully stock a new backpack with school supplies and a water bottle for one student

$75 purchases one new basketball, lacrosse or soccer uniform for the growing number of boys in our athletics programs

$150 sponsors one student to attend our annual eight-week, all-day Camp NorthStar program

$300 covers one week of gas for our vans to bring students to NorthStar from any of our area schools

Interesting Info

NorthStar sees an average of 180 young men every day in its after-school program and over 250 boys at the Camp NorthStar event in June and July
98% of NorthStar students maintain or increase core academic skills through Camp NorthStar, avoiding the detrimental effects of summer learning loss
85% of parents/caregivers identify quality of programming as the primary reason for choosing NorthStar for their son
