The All Stars Project (ASP) is a growing national nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of youth from poor and underserved communities using the developmental power of performance, in partnership with caring adults, giving everyone the opportunity to grow. ASP’s afterschool development programs include performance programs, bridge-building efforts, and programs where we partner with the business community to help young people create a professional performance, while also building community and imagining new possibilities for their futures. We have transformed our unique, community-based and grassroots programs, founded in NYC in 1981, into a growing movement reaching 10,000 inner-city youth and families each year in 6 cities, raising $11 million annually in private funding for our “development through performance – on stage and in life” programs.
We have become one of the country’s leading Afterschool Development organizations, using performance as our approach to helping kids and families grow on and off the stage, and to build bridges through volunteer and direct partnership initiatives between supporters, volunteers, and the youth of All Stars.
Through the developmental power of performance we transform the lives of youth from poor and underserved communities in partnership with caring adults, giving everyone the opportunity to grow.
All Stars Project is on the forefront of building community by bridging racial, economic and social divisions to develop a 21st Century caring America.
