Each year, the All Stars Project involves more than 20,000 young people in development activities that give them the opportunity to perform and to grow.
We have transformed from a grassroots, all volunteer-run effort into a national model for engaging poverty through Afterschool Development and community organizing. ASP is headquartered in New York City on West 42nd Street in a 31,000-square-foot performing arts and development complex and in 2013 opened the Scott Flamm Center for Afterschool Development, a 9,000-square-foot performing arts and development center in Newark, NJ. With two centers and operations in seven cities across the country, we bring inner-city youth together with business and cultural leaders, academics, police officers and other caring adults to create new kinds of relationships and environments where everyone grows.
