Chris Street is a change-maker with an unparalleled talent for unifying diverse individuals around transformative causes. His involvement with the All Stars Project (ASP) began as a volunteer in 1992, and he has subsequently dedicated over 30 years to building the ASP from a small, local community-based nonprofit into a national organization operating in six cities and serving youth in over 20 states through in-person and virtual programs.
Chris has served as president of the ASP since 2020 and was recently appointed by the Board of Directors as the ASP’s next CEO as of November 1, 2023. Chris is a leading social entrepreneur who provides strategic direction to the organization’s operations nationwide. He works closely with national and regional board members on advancing ASP’s impact and oversees the planning and execution of all programming, operations and community-building activities. In recent years, he has built a team that creates and designs new training solutions for nonprofits, community colleges and corporations using the ASP’s performance-based development approach. He has engaged with elected officials and government leaders from New York City, Chicago, Dallas and Newark to create public–private partnerships and launch new initiatives like Operation Conversation: Cops & Kids in New Jersey with Mayor Ras Baraka’s administration. More recently, he has led discussions with education institutions like Dallas College and ICA Cristo Rey (San Francisco) on creating new kinds of workforce development solutions for their student bodies, bringing the performatory developmental approach into engagements with institutions focused on learning.
As the national Director of Development from 1999–2019, he tripled annual income, established endowment and reserves, and led the raising of over $200 million from both individual and institutional funders for the ASP’s ground-breaking youth and community development programs, including award-winning workforce development, performance initiatives and police–community relations work. He created a strategic partnership with the Aspen Leadership Group that has enhanced philanthropic partnership work, resulting in a series of $1–$5 million investments in the organization by philanthropists from coast to coast. ASP expansion campaigns during that time culminated in the opening of the performing arts and development center on West 42nd Street in New York City in 2003; a campaign to open the Scott Flamm Center for Afterschool Development in downtown Newark, where Chris served as Director from 2013–2016; and the regional expansion of All Stars Project to Chicago, Dallas and the Bay Area. The All Stars Project’s diverse national fundraising department has created a gold standard training program in philanthropic partnership building, which has been featured in The Chronicle of Philanthropy.
After graduating from New Canaan High School in Connecticut and the London School of Economics in 1992, Chris dedicated his life to public service and community organizing initiatives that focus on advancing equality of opportunity, diverse civic leadership and social entrepreneurship. In 2022, he graduated from the Integral Leadership Program of the Stagen Leadership Academy (Dallas, TX). He currently resides in Dallas, TX and travels regularly to each ASP market.
