School Services

The Black Star Project has provided services for youth and parents at over 200 schools in Cook County since its founding in 1996. We have an expanding variety of programs to help improve your school. Our services are all subsidized by corporate and foundation grants, but there are some costs associated with their operation. We will do our best to work with whatever funds you have within your budget. You can also call Ava Myles at 773.285.9600 for more information on bringing our programs to your school.

At The Black Star Project, we firmly believe that parents are the first, best, and most important educators for their children.  We can help your school better engage its parents and build a more productive partnership with them to support the education of all of our children.  We also have a special emphasis on involving fathers because we see what a difference it makes to even have a small group of engaged and supportive fathers in a school.
