Our mission: To create a place like no other for our youth that will give kids fun, exciting & educational activities to do during out of school time; these activities will discourage them from getting involved in trouble and inspire them to dream big & achieve all of their goals & aspirations.
Wilson's Rising Stars Youth Academy was founded in October of 2017. This organization was specifically built to create a place for our youth can go during out of school time. The city of Jacksonville, Florida had been going through some tough times, and I could not sit idle as I watched children in our community go down the wrong paths, & I could not watch children be murdered in our city. So the organization was specifically built to create a place for our youth where they can go and have fun, play sports, have access to computers, academic help & more. Most importantly, give them a safe place that will inspire them to dream big. Unfortunately a lot of the low income students that we wish to target cannot afford to come to a place such as ours, so we affiliated with the amateur athletic Union in 2019, creating our non-profit in hopes of getting funding to fund the children that need us most. We have built an organization in the past 2 years & created trust within the community, we've held 2 summer camps, 2 years of afterschool, numerous of events specifically targeted to our youth.
We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you.
We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you. Thank you for your time and donations that makes this possible!
Check out our summer camp 2019 experiences.
In 2019, dozens of our children got the opportunity to have swimming lessons & have free time at the pool. We will continue that this year.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of those in our community. Your contribution today helps us make a difference.
