About This Organization
Starfinder motivates and challenges children and youth from across Greater Philadelphia through after school and summer programs. We use soccer as the hook in our sports-based youth development practices that promote physical, personal, and academic growth. We heavily invest in each Starfinder participant, surrounding them with a supportive network of mentors and coaches. We help youth navigate the path to college and careers. Our students come from Olney to Overbrook, speaking over 25 different languages, to form a collaborative community of cultural exchange centered on a universal game. With the help of generous donors and volunteers, we’re changing the trajectory of our kids’ lives, using soccer to create social change.
