Dear Friend of Children,

More than ever, The Black Star Project needs your help as we work to educate and save our children with some of the best student, parent, male-involvement and community-support programs in the country.


Some of the programmatic highlights for The Black Star Project this year include:
The Toyota/Black Star Parent University, where we have provided more than 450 parenting courses, since the beginning of the program in 2004, in English and Spanish.
Parent Resource Fairs, where we have connected parents to more than 50 parent-improvement resources.
Parent of the Year Awards, where we honored more than 75 top parents in Chicago.
The Golden Parent Awards, where we honored the three top parents in Illinois.
The Fathers Club, which helps thousands of men bond with their children at educational and recreational venues.
The Million Father March in 475 cities with 600,000 men taking their children to school last year.
The Door-to-Door Parenting Campaign, where we distributed educational and child developmental materials in low-income, high-violence communities.
The League of Black Parents, an advocacy group working to create better Black parents.
The Black Star PTA, the first community-based PTA in Illinois.

The Black Star Scholars Educational Services
is offering
a Mandarin Chinese Language Class, a Math Masters Boot Camp and
a Reading Warriors Boot Camp

Education never stops in the world in which we live, and effective parents never stop giving their children opportunities to learn.

Most American schools do not prepare Black children to be globally competitive. The Black Star Project does! We can help ensure that your child is exposed to world-class information and skills and is ready to compete globally.
Black children who learn only Monday through Friday between 9:00 am and 2:45 pm are at a severe, competitive disadvantage compared to their international counterparts who study longer, harder, more purposefully and who get additional support from their families, schools and communities.

Black children will not be able to compete in the new global educational arena unless they are supported to match the effort and intensity of their global classmates.

Register your child for:
