𝗢𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄: Shoot for the Stars has partnered with industry professionals, community based organizations as well as garnered the support of teachers and administrators from the department of education, to guide middle and high school aged children through the process of cultivating a creative release while opening their minds to becoming intentional participants in their lives and the life of the communities. They are encouraged to use critical analysis of historical and contemporary texts, self advocacy, performing arts, and visual arts to understand the power and impact of words. Participants also have access to financial literacy and the business aspects of the industry.

Evidence suggests that arts exposure can be instrumental in resolving conflicts, deterring problems with attendance and disruptive behavior, and building self-respect, self-efficacy, resilience, empathy, collaborative skills, and other characteristics and capacities that are linked to high student achievement.
