Each summer we recruit and train 20-25 exceptional students, ages 16-22, to participate in our STARS Program – working directly with our staff and participants to create, shape and enhance exciting programs for Amazing Place. Our STARS have an enormous impact on our organization.  

For the past several years, we have been honored to receive a grant to hire an intern to manage the STARS Program through ExxonMobil’s Community Summer Jobs (CSJP) Program. ExxonMobil awards grants to certain Houston-area nonprofits in exchange for meaningful summer internship opportunities for college students.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, our STARS Program was canceled in 2020. We look forward to relaunching this special program in the summer of 2021.

If you are interested in joining our STARS Program summer 2021, please contact our Director of Volunteer Services at or (713) 660-1378.
