North Star Youth Ministries
Located just across Arkadelphia from Birmingham-Southern, NorthStar Youth Ministries offers summer camps and after-school programs for children from the College Hills neighborhood and surrounding areas. NorthStar is committed to providing low- to moderate-income families with enrichment opportunities equal to those available to children in high-income areas. Year-round activities include art classes and soccer programs, as well as access to a community ecoscape.
BSC students assist once or twice a week with soccer teams ranging from under-6 to 12 year olds, and may also volunteer in the art classes. Additionally, groups such as Beta Beta Beta plan and facilitate community service days involving the ecoscape and other environmental emphases.
