Empower youth to achieve their dreams by providing goal-setting programs that promote literacy, fitness and mentoring.
Our History
Olympic Gold Medalist and WNBA All‐Star Tamika Catchings created the Catch the Stars Foundation in the spring of 2004. She is a community leader and embraces being a positive role model by encouraging youth to be all that they can be.

Catchings felt compelled to start the foundation because she understands that the youth of today are the stars of tomorrow and the lack of support for our youth results in many never reaching their full potential.

The Catch the Stars Foundation empowers youth to achieve their dreams by providing goal setting programs that promote fitness, literacy and youth development. Our programs are targeted to youth throughout Indianapolis, with a specific emphasis on supporting and assisting under-served and low to moderate income communities throughout our city.
