January is our second favorite month at Starfish, just behind May when Scholars graduate from college ready to make their mark on the world. January is National Mentoring Month, so we want to take this opportunity to thank those who push forward the Starfish mission.
Teams and Sponsors are starting to come on board for The Incredible Journey to College! Starfish is excited to be hosting their first annual team scavenger hunt event on the campus of IUPUI this spring.
When she joined Starfish, Scholar alum Tashinda Jackson was dealing with the death of her grandmother. Little did she know that her Mentor Ann Brackett would become an integral part of her support system.
Over 250 Scholars and chaperones participated in Leadership Camp 2014: Discovering Your Passion and Finding Your Voice. For young people, discovering that they have a voice is critical in their development.
There is a philosophy at Starfish that we try to instill in all our Scholars — the sooner you begin thinking about your career, the better off you’ll be.
“Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
-Saint Francis of Assisi
