The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust awarded Starfish Initiative a $50,000 grant, for a second consecutive year to help support its college readiness efforts.
In conjunction with Indianapolis Public Schools, the Starfish program will give students firsthand experience with local employers.
We are excited to share with you an upcoming event, The Incredible Journey to College - the first of what we plan to be a large scale, annual event for Starfish. The Incredible Journey event is a corporate challenge/team scavenger hunt taking place on the campus of IUPUI.
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.
