After-School All-Stars provides quality comprehensive after-school programs to young people who need a safe, supervised educational environment from 3:00-6:00 pm.
After-School All-Stars (ASAS) has provided tremendous opportunities for the positive development for the children of our community. The ASAS believes that our Comprehensive After- School programs are the most positive investments that can help families and communities to teach kids the values and skills to become good citizens. Our programs are designed to deter children from gangs, drugs, and violence with a focus on academic success, health education and creating family involvement. The purpose of the programs is to provide a comprehensive combination of computer training, fitness, sportsmanship, life skills training, fun, art and recreation in a safe, supervised environment for children in targeted neighborhoods throughout the year. The multitude of programs we can offer allow us to promote a "sport for all" orientation, encouraging widespread participation in sports, computer education and other health related activities. The ASAS programs are targeted for children in the age range of 7-17; with the middle school population representing over 60% of our total participants.
Our program was designed with the focus on identifying student performance indicators, effective program elements and evaluation measures for after-school programs. Each of our sites is committed to providing a comprehensive after-school experience that includes our core components; Independent Learning, Academics, Physical Activity and Enrichment. Rather than being home alone or on the streets, children should be involved in positive academic and recreational activities with caring adults and positive role models whose goal is to help them achieve their greatest potential. One of the important parts of our efforts to educate every child is to make sure there are high-quality after-school programs that nurture our investment in our children and their future. We need after-school programs that are strong academically and encourage fitness and healthy habits, and our programs do that. This is definitely a need for our communities. – less–ZoomInfo
