What began as a single spark, now brightens the lives of children and youth internationally, in the United States and the Dominican Republic. InnerStar provides year-round and summer educational programs that integrate practical tools, innovation, and leadership so that students can develop the skills and self-confidence to succeed.

The InnerStar Summer Learning Initiative is designed to expose youth ages 10 to 16 from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds to emerging career paths in marketing/advertising, sports, music and entertainment, and creative industries. ISLI provides a fun camp environment that teaches technical skills and character education to promote comprehensive vocational preparation. The camp includes cross-cultural interaction and knowledge exchange between students from the United States and Dominican Republic.


Throughout the school year, InnerStar supports young people through customized learning opportunities so that participants can further explore their career interests, develop their talents, and practice leadership.

Our year-round offerings encourage student motivation and engagement in the classroom as well. Each participant receives an InnerStar mentor with experience in one of InnerStar’s identified fields of training.


The InnerStar Personal Success Formula is incorporated into every learning opportunity.
