About Us

Students Taking an Active Role in Society (STARS) is a Non-Profit organization whose purpose is to fund projects that will result in social changes to make the world a better place.

STARS evolved to where patenting ideas for improving the infrastructure of our day-to-day life was its main focus. In 1991, recognizing that inventions that will change the world required money, STARS achieved full 501(c)3 status as a Non-Profit, Tax-Exempt organization in order to actively fundraise.

Since then, STARS has continued to evolve to its present state whereby any worthwhile project that will enhance and/or improve society’s well being is considered for support. Today, the goal of STARS is to raise money to fund projects that correspond to the objectives of the organization.

For more information on the projects that have been and are under the umbrella of STARS, please feel free to browse our website. If you are already aware of the positive activities that STARS is doing or intending to do in our community and want to make a fully tax deductible contribution to STARS, please CLICK HERE.

STARS was founded by students Eric Weaver and Chuck Miccolis along with recent grad Keith Sargent at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

Under its original name Rent-A-Student, it s goal was to provide opportunities for students to get college credit for real world activities. Since Eric and Chuck were both Engineering students at that time, their efforts focused mainly upon using their developing expertise to assist in community enhancement projects.
