S.T.A.R.S. (Strong, Talented, Assertive, Respectful Sisters) Mentoring Foundation was founded in 2016 by Cristina Marrero. It's a 501(C)3 nonprofit foundation. The foundation encourages young women to be confident by discussing topics related to teens' everyday life. It empowers them to be leaders in their schools and communities. These young women are engaged in building relationships and lasting friendships. In S.T.A.R.S., these three E's (Encourage, Empower & Engage) are accomplished by incorporating activities, lessons and discussions to build these young women to be outstanding citizens and role models to others in their community. We hope to continue our growth and expand S.T.A.R.S. to many schools.
