Building a Better Future

College Trips

Junior S.T.A.R.S. empowers youth in the greater Chicagoland Bolingbrook area to reach their fullest potential through a wide range of services. We care about our students, and provide them with a number of enrichment programs to help shape their identity. Our College trips provides them with the education needed to receive tools and resources to prepare for college, get involved in the college community leadership programs, and meet new and exciting faces from all around the world. With the support of the school district we are able to have some assistance to transport the students to some of the colleges. Come experience it for yourself today!

NIU Trip, 2017

All students enjoyed hearing about the many leadership opportunities offered at NIU. They had many questions for financial aid and the admissions process. The staff from the chance department Passion and Mr. Seymore delivered an AWESOME motivating speech on real life choices, decisions, and provided info on how the Chance department services can truly impact your future. We had a great time and also enjoyed the lunch in the dorm environment.

BENEDICTINE TRIP

Committed to Enriching the Lives of Youth
March, 2018

A Junior STARS member said, "I am glad that we came here. This school is awesome and very clean. Everyone is really nice. I never been on a college campus before. I am considering applying to Benedictine."

Providing the resources for students to attend the college trips is a beautiful thing. Our fundraisers and donations helps us to pay for transportation which provides relief on the families. Thank you to all and the principal of Bolingbrook high school who has made this program possible.

COLLEGE TRIPS

We believe that it is important to pursue your education as far as you can go. Which is why we want to make sure we not only speak on how important it is, but also take the students to the campus to actually feel and see what it is like to enjoy college life and all it has to offer. We have more college trips planned for the remainder of the school year and look forward to more for the 2018-2019 school year. Thanks to all for their support in making this opportunity possible for Junior STARS members.

We had a great time learning about the many opportunities available for scholarships and employment. UIC is partnered with many federal and state employers that are also located in the downtown community. Great food choices from  various restaurants on campus and so much more!
