INNER CITY PROGRAM

STAR

Everything we do builds skills and character in the young people we serve. We aspire to nurture resilient and capable life-long learners.

The STAR (Skills Through Arts and Recreation) programs recognize the need for quality programs that are unique to our kids’ needs. Each program attempts to challenge and recognize the accomplishments of each individual participant. 

Ratio of staff to participants is really important in working with children with lagging skills. 

Some programs have a 1:1 ratio of mentors to participants. In order to ensure all participants are supported and mentored sufficiently we aim for a 1:3 ratio of mentor to participant. From ages 6-17, participants in STAR programs can build skills in a variety of programs.
 

STAR programs brings opportunities to learn, grow, and build skills to children living in poverty right where they live. Christie Lake Kids operates programs in social housing across the city of Ottawa. Children and youth enjoy barrier-free access to activities they want to engage in, such as pottery, swimming, hockey, dodge ball, and cooking. Children are supported and mentored by staff and volunteers who are sensitive to their needs and circumstances and who are willing to go the extra mile so these children have opportunities to succeed and build their sense of accomplishment while having fun.

In the impoverished and sometimes dangerous communities where these children live, the STAR program creates an oasis of safety, positive reinforcement, care, and continuity. Children often engage in programs two or three nights a week and weekends, because they feel good about themselves in the STAR programs and get opportunities that are otherwise not available to them. This early intervention, providing healthy modeling and experiences of positive communication, learning skills, group dynamics, and respect has a significant impact on how these children will navigate their life path. Studies show that they will do better in school, will stay more engaged, and will make better choices because they had constructive, positive, esteem-building learning experiences in the critical hours.
