The Ernie Sims Big HITS Foundation recognizes that impacting youth and their families assists in the overall development of the entire family. This program offers opportunities for youth participants in the program to take part in direct 1 on 1 mentoring, active fitness training and a curriculum of activities throughout the year that are structured to enhance their personal and social development, self-esteem, body mass index, moral reasoning, academics and encourage youth to dream beyond the often-oppressive conditions of dysfunctional and negative environments and lifestyles.

The purpose of the STARS Mentoring Academy is to provide prevention and early intervention mentorship, character development and health training to youth ages 7-15 and their families residing in Leon County, Florida and surrounding areas.

“Remember that mentor leadership is all about serving. Jesus said, “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45).” ”
