Welcome to Shining Star Youth andCommunity Services

Shining Star Youth and Community Services serves at-risk children and their families in Illinois. We have locations located in South Chicago, Roseland, Chatham/Avalon Park and the East Side community of Chicago. Shining Star Youth and Community Services was created for at-risk youth and their families to have access to life changing opportunities. Some of our services include early childhood education, mentoring programs, and family support services.

We exist in order to give attention especially to children whose educational needs are overlooked due to problems surrounding their family and community. These problems may be due to the economic stress, neglect, domestic violence, recent divorce, loss in the family and many other factors.

Our programs are aimed to help these families get the help that they need so they may break the stigma that comes with poor education. Shining Star Youth and Community Services takes this opportunity to help other people as a way of giving back to our beloved community and to feed our passion for helping people in need.

Developing Partners Family Engagement & Community Partnership
