Our Team.

United by a commitment to build community.

Gabrielle L. Kurlander – CEO

Gabrielle L. Kurlander is a trained actress, theatre director, and non-profit entrepreneur who has transformed All Stars Project, Inc. (ASP) from a small New York City-based, grassroots, all-volunteer effort into a national organization and model for engaging poverty through Afterschool Development, employing an innovative performance approach.

As its founding chief executive officer, Ms. Kurlander worked closely with hundreds of community leaders, volunteers, and activists to build ASP into a non-profit force. Starting in 1997, she expanded the board of directors to include business leaders from Wall Street and diverse fields who provided the first significant seed capital to bring the All Stars Project into the top tier of citywide non-profits in New York.
