Inspiring Transformational Change With
Training Programs That Work 

For over 25 years, STAR of Coastal Georgia has worked to help individuals in our local community learn the skills they need to thrive on their personal and professional journeys.  Our name stands for SKILLS, TRAINING, ADVANCEMENT, and READINESS.  STAR is a not-for-profit organization located in Glynn County, Georgia, whose mission is to educate and empower members of our coastal community with the foundational skills they need to thrive personally and professionally. We believe that our training programs enhance the overall stability of our students and their families, as well as improve the quality of our local workforce.


At STAR, we offer a variety of courses in computer skills, employment readiness, financial literacy, and life skills to adults, older adults and teens in our community, ranging from comprehensive multi-week training programs to shorter 2-hour workshops. See our Programs & Calendar Page for details on the different courses we offer, and click the link below to view a current calendar.  Click here to register for a course.

STAR is a perfect example of teaching folks how to fish - a much more meaningful gift than giving them a fish!

I support STAR because the organization is extremely well run, uses donations effectively and efficiently, and aligns with my belief in personal responsibility.

STAR is a tremendous organization...I especially love the attention they give their students around budgeting and money management to ensure that the wages they make will be managed well.
