The name, North Star can refer to the steady dependable northern star that many people have used to light their path to ensure a safe journey and return home.
The North Star can also symbolically be that which is a steady set of values or standards, positive role model, guiding structure, nurturing discipline, or perhaps a spiritual steadiness that lights one's course.
True North is the inner compass that aides you effectively through life. It speaks to your identity as a person at your most profound level. It is your guiding point - your fixed point in a changing world - that helps you remain on track as a leader.
We believe there are guiding Star's in our life meant for each of us to realize. For those who have lost their true north, and need help finding their guiding Star once again. Each child who has found their true north, through treatment, counseling, structure, supervision, and the ability to be a mentoring leader to others as a light, shares the responsibility to a vital lesson....that each teenager must find their own North Star, and claim the life they were meant to live.
Although the Star of Bethlehem and the North Star are not the same, they do share similar meaning and expressions. We understand the Star of Bethlehem guided the 3 wise men to the Christ child, the one who would exclaim, "I am the way, the truth and the life," a light to the world, and a sure dependable steady fixed point for those who believe on Him. The very one who is the "Light and Life of the World."
Our philosophy is that, the North Star at night is one of the brightest in the heavenly skies, the most steadfast, dependable, guiding light for all weary travelers, to have a sure point to help them back to safety, regardless of how dark the night maybe.
We believe the similarity between these 2 different stars, brings a united purpose that directs each teen to seek their true north, a guiding light, a Northern Star that can help them claim their full potential for reaching the goals and aspirations that will direct their future for the better.
