The Starfish Exchange
Our Flagship community strengthening activity has been offered at schools, festivals, markets, and events. Become a Starfish Caster and do the Starfish Exchange! Below is a description of how it works:
Save the World! Be a Starfish Caster 101
Meaningful and interactive workshops awakening and recharging the HERO in each of us! Participants will learn to understand the power each of us has to make a difference through our simple daily actions and attitudes and will be motivated to embrace the responsibility to take action! Learn about the "Three C's to Social Change," and have an opportunity to practice their use. Participants will leave anxious to begin setting loose the ripples of positive intention and action with their very own Starfish Caster kit! This workshop is perfect for establishing a community of "Heroes," who will create and protect atmospheres of respect and service.
Programs are available for Middle and High Schools as well as community Centers. Long term Starfish Caster Culture Causing support also available!
Group Arts: Songs and Murals
We provide custom arts projects such as collective written songs and participant painted murals. Contact us to bring a Starfish Casters art project to your pro-social event!

On Our Impact
"I wanted to take this moment and send a big THANK YOU for the time you spent with us this Fall at TechBoston Academy. As our school year comes to an end, I find myself reflecting on the highlights. One highlight that keeps jumping out is the commanding impact the Starfish Casters presentation continues to have on our community. The presentation has, in many ways, “framed our year”. Middle School learning is so much deeper than the academics. You provided us a framework for our social and emotional growth, and it is POWERFUL! I use the language of starfish casters daily in my interactions with students. When I meet with students, I start with the question “what is your superpower”. I remind kids the attributes of heroes, and we review what “villainous behavior” looks like in the classroom. Of equal importance to students, we discuss the name they put on their starfish. Using this frame of reference ensures a thoughtful and caring response. The time you spent with us has truly changed our year. Thank you for casting a starfish in Boston!"
With deep gratitude-
Chief Administrative Officer
