Working in neighborhoods that have been hit the hardest by violence — the South and West Sides — the All Stars Project of Chicago has touched the lives of over 35,000 young people since 2007. The business and philanthropic communities have stepped up with All Stars to address the city’s tough issues, and are expanding the All Stars Talent Show Network and the Development School for Youth at record speed. Off the success of our growth in Chicago, in 2016 All Stars launched an expansion campaign to establish a Center for Afterschool Development in the heart of downtown. ASP of Chicago Executive Director is Julie Lenner and City Leader is David Cherry.
