Our mission is to be a premier means for at-risk Ecuadorian youth to achieve a post-secondary education.
The Starfish Foundation coordinates three main programs in Guayaquil and Flor de Bastion: scholarship, tutoring and leadership development.
The Starfish Foundation distributes scholarships in the form of all books, uniforms and materials required by the school. Students earn their scholarship based on participation in our tutoring program, motivation to study and economic need. In order to remain in the scholarship program, all students attend monthly meetings, regularly present their grades, and participate in all other Starfish events & activities.
The tutoring program aims to empower the students to succeed in school, giving each student a safe space to complete their homework each day. All Scholarship students participate in tutoring. Other students from the neighborhood are also invited to participate in tutoring to receive academic help and have the change to earn a scholarship for the following year.
All of our students, to demonstrate their commitment to their studies as well as their social commitment to their community, participate in community service and leadership development workshops. These activities include volunteering at local shelters, cleaning up the community, helping fellow students and participating in & leading teamwork and leadership activities. Through support and empowerment, our Starfish Scholars will become the future leaders of their communities.
