Dear VSTAR Mentor:

It is with great pleasure, passion, and perseverance that I present to you Virtuous Star, Inc. (VSTAR).

VSTAR is an organization geared toward saving all females in underprivileged areas by providing them with more opportunities through expanding their horizons.  VSTAR is a threefold organization that offers exposure in the area of dance, mentoring, and charm. Each component of the VSTAR organization offers an opportunity to connect with girls who are in search of building character in an effort to become a better person.  We believe that there is a need to cater to female youth between the ages of 5 and 18 in an effort to mold, shape, and equip them with the necessary tools to become successful women in their communities.

Many minority based communities lack resources and programs that are needed to ensure that females are equipped with the necessary tools to become successful. Brigham Young University was onto something when they said “For all teen students, having an adult mentor meant a 50 percent greater likelihood of attending college.” Furthermore, “For disadvantaged students, mentorship by a teacher nearly doubled the odds of attending college.”  It is with these aspirations that I carry out the mission of VSTAR: to change the direction of female youth to one that is fully restorative of positivity for their futures.

VSTAR addresses these deficits in young females by allowing mentors to come in, provide guidance, and speak about reaching goals. We understand that there is a need, and as a result, there is VSTAR. It is my hope that you will support VSTAR in its efforts and serve as a Mentor. You can assist us in this movement as we strive to create opportunities for our girls to become “Virtuous Sophisticated Talented Amazingly Remarkable!”

 Thank you for your support,
