START Program

​Equips youth for life success. ​​START Program's vision is to be catapults for change, to be a constant hub and network for our youth.  They will be able to work well in a group, but not be afraid to stand alone when necessary.  They will be better equipped mentally.  They will make conscious decisions and better choices throughout life.  They will become more emotionally sound, learning to communicate constructively and effectively by having a platform to vent and release without being judged.  They will also become physically fit.  Exercise has been proven to relieve stress, to promote respect among peers, and also attack obesity head on.  We focus on community and youth development, violence prevention, building bridges for success, maintaining family structure and support systems, and more. 

Free gun locks available for pick-up.  To schedule a pick-up, email: info@STARTprograms.org or call: 312-838-5200.
