Northstar Learning Center


We are a non-profit organization. That means all of the money we receive goes back into our programs for the benefit of the children, youth, and families we serve.

We continue to offer some programs even though, financially, we know we should shut them down. That program may, however, be a lifeline or ray of hope for a child, youth, or family. Your contribution helps make these strapped programs possible.
