This led to the launch of STARS: Supporting Teachers & Ready Students, a demonstration project that will engage 24 community-based early learning centers in high-quality teaching and development practices. With a $618,000 investment over two years, GAR is placing a stake in the ground to define the supports that matter most to the teachers of our most important learners, kids age three to five, right here in Akron.

The ultimate goal with STARS is that children enter kindergarten ready to learn and ready for success. This matters to our community, to the Foundation and, most of all, to the kids who are Akron’s future. Learn more here >>.
