Who we are.

Our mission.

We transform the lives of youth and poor communities using the developmental power of performance, in partnership with caring adults.

In All Stars programs, people learn new performances onstage and off. They try new things, become more worldly and begin to create new possibilities for themselves and their communities.

  • 100% privately funded.

    Our model of private funding guarantees innovative, cutting edge programs that work.

  • Building community.

    We’ve grown through a grassroots approach to building community.

  • Partnership, going beyond charity to growth.

    Everyone involved grows through creating something new together.

Our bold vision.

By 2020, we will be recognized as America’s leader in Afterschool Development, a new way of engaging poverty.
