Starfinder Foundation inspires young people from underserved communities to achieve success both on and off the field. Founded in 2002, Starfinder’s soccer and education programs help youth build their athletic skills while providing them with the kind of support – adult mentoring, health education, academic assistance, and life skills development – that helps them build a foundation for long-term success in their lives. Starfinder currently serves over 600 children and teens annually through after school and summer programs at its indoor soccer and education facility in Manayunk and at community partner sites throughout the city.
Starfinder is a nonprofit 501(c)3 sports-based youth development organization. Our annual operating budget is nearly $850K and growing. We are currently engaged in strategic planning to set the long-term vision and goals for the next five years. Starfinder is poised to expand its reach while continuing to deliver highly impactful programs that foster long-term engagement.
