Summer Stars (www.summerstars.org), one of the largest non-profit summer programs in the country, works each year to send hundreds of urban youth to a free, ten-day performing arts and music education excursion. The program – completely free to campers – relies entirely on donations for funding, and this year we are competing in the Pepsi Refresh Everything project (www.refresheverything.com/summerstars) for a chance to win a grant for this year’s program.
Each day, supporters can cast a fresh vote to help the Summer Stars cause. Founded in 1999 as the Britney Spears Camp for the Performing Arts, and later the American Idol Camp, Summer Stars was renamed in 2006 as the leading non-profit summer arts program in the country. Entering our 11th year in bringing art, music and nature to children who need it most, we hope you might join our cause. We need as many votes as possible by April 30, 2010 to secure the grant we are seeking.
Supporters can vote every 24 hours, and your help can make a huge change in the lives of our campers.
Summer Stars alumni have gone on to take on incredible jobs and roles! Also, please visit their blog, YouTube channel and Twitter account for more information and fresh daily content showing the camp’s curriculum, course offerings and more.
