LETTER FROM AN ALL-STAR

“ASAS IS A PROGRAM WITH PEOPLE WHO CARE IF YOU LEARN, CARE IF YOU ARE SAFE & CARE IF YOU SUCCEED.” My name is Gladylis Morales, and I’m going into the 7th grade at Jackson Middle School. I wanted to tell you how much this program has done for me and helped me through a really hard time in my life. As far back as I can remember I had a great family that worked hard and was happy and gave me everything I needed. But that all changed when I was in the 3rd grade, my dad died from diabetes. My mom had a very hard time finding work. Over the next three years I lived in many different places. Sometimes we stayed with relatives or friends or even at a shelter. Sometimes there were 9 or 10 people in a two bedroom apartment. Most of the time my sister and I slept on blankets or old towels instead of a bed. We lived in some very scary neighborhoods with lots of violence, gangs and drugs. I even had to go to 4 different elementary schools.

Gladylis and City of Orlando, Commissioner Tony Ortiz

In 5th grade my mom married my step-dad and things started to get better. We moved into our own apartment. But last summer my step dad and mom lost their jobs and everything was happening all over again. During that summer I did nothing and had nowhere to go. I felt sad and alone and didn’t want to talk to anybody or do anything. One day I was walking to class and saw a sign that read “After-School All-Stars Cheerleading Sign-Up.” I went in and asked if there was a tryout. The staff said that everyone who wants to participate is on the team. I signed up and it has been the best thing I have ever done. Now I’m on the cheerleading and baseball teams, a bunch of different clubs and I’m a student advisory board member. I even made the honor roll! But when the summer came I did not know what I was going to do. Luckily, the staff told me about the Summer of Dreams program. Because of this program I had a safe and fun place to go this summer. They made sure I ate breakfast and lunch every day and they also helped me get food and clothes for my family. I got the chance go to reading, math, science, cooking and arts and crafts classes and made a lot of new friends. These programs have changed my life. I know that no matter what, the staff at the program will always be there for me. It is a program with people that care if you learn, care if you are safe and care if you succeed. Thank you, there are a lot of kids just like me that need a safe place to feel like a kid again. Sincerely,

Gladylis Morales | 7th Grade, ASAS Orlando Participant After-School All-Stars Annual Report 2010 - 2011

OUR MISSION

AFTER-SCHOOL ALL-STARS [ASAS] PROVIDES COMPREHENSIVE AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS THAT KEEP CHILDREN SAFE AND HELP THEM ACHIEVE IN SCHOOL AND IN LIFE. OUR GOAL

is to identify and fuel our students’ individual passions by tying their interests to tailored academic support, enrichment activities and sports. ASAS gives its students a safe-haven during the “danger zone” hours of 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. — the time of day when youth violence, drug use, and other delinquent behaviors are most likely to occur. By creating lasting relationships

4

with our students and incorporating service learning, we equip our All-Stars with the confidence and skills to become productive members of their community. We provide effective and thoughtful support to fight against the high school drop-out and obesity crises and to ready our students for fulfilling careers in the modern workforce.

ASAS PROGRAM CORNERSTONES 1. PHYSICAL & EMOTIONAL SAFETY Physical safety and emotional contentment of our students is priority number one.

2. STRONG SCHOOL PARTNERSHIPS “Honor thy Principal” means we tailor programs to the needs of each individual school. The after-school hours provide a uniquely creative and entrepreneurial time in the field of public education. By teaming up with the principal and faculty at each site, we’re able to identify each student’s specific needs and tailor programming to supplement the existing efforts at each school. Our Cornerstones lay the foundation for our unique, effective afterschool programming.

3. STUDENT VOICE & CHOICE ASAS students vote on what activities they partake in after school.

4. INTENTIONAL SKILL DEVELOPMENT Students find their passions and build self-confidence through developing new skills in ASAS programs.

5. COMMUNITY & FAMILY ENGAGEMENT We work as partners with our students’ parents and families.

6. CARING YOUTH-ADULT RELATIONSHIPS ASAS kids come because of the “cool” programs, but they stay because of the relationships they build with caring adults. After-School All-Stars Annual Report 2010 - 2011

NATIONAL REACH

ASAS will celebrate its 20 year anniversary in 2012! Over the past five years, we’ve doubled the number of students we serve, from approximately 40,000 students in ‘06 to 81,642 students over the ‘10-‘11 school-year, on nearly 400 school campuses in 12 US cities.

WE ARE READY

In response to America’s high school drop-out crisis, ASAS launched its We Are Ready (W.A.R.) program to better prepare our middle school students for success in high school and beyond. Our curriculum targets 8th graders who exhibit signs that they are at risk of dropping out and helps them answer the question: Why does graduating from high school matter?

ASAS student participates in a We Are Ready activity at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas during CampUs

Through career and college exposure, academic support, service projects, counseling and mentoring, W.A.R. provides middle school students with the skills, information, and confidence they need to successfully navigate their transition into high school so they are better prepared to graduate. Thus far, the program has been successfully piloted with over 1,500 students in 100 ASAS schools in Chicago, Miami, the San Francisco Bay Area, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, Hawaii, Atlanta, and San Antonio. W.A.R. gives students concrete strategies for success in high school and beyond. This year’s W.A.R. participants shared the knowledge they gained from participating in the class, filling in the sentence, “to prepare for high school, college, and career, I will…” Student responses: “study more,” “take SAT prep classes,” “find clubs [in high school] that will help with my major and finding a job,” “get good grades,” “obtain a good mentor.” From our first pilot group of W.A.R. participants: 99% were promoted to 9th grade with the rest of their class. 58% of W.A.R. students started on drop-out “Watch Lists,” demonstrating high risk for dropping out through low attendance and grades, and poor behavior. 86% of W.A.R. students improved their daily school attendance and behavior evaluations.

CAMP US

100%

of students self-reported two things after camp, 1. knowing more about how to have a successful job interview and 2. feeling more motivated and prepared to do well in the 9th grade.

As a continuation of ASAS’ W.A.R. curriculum, ASAS rising 9th graders, who are identified as at risk of dropping out, participate in a summer high school transition program called CampUs. Students sleep in college dorms, eat in the cafeteria and take daily classes on how to be successful in high school, college, and the workforce. Students create personalized four-year high school plans, including local graduation requirements. They learn about the SATs, complete their own mock college application and admissions interview, select college classes and majors, and visit various academic departments on campus. They are mentored by successful high school and college students and hear from career panels of community leaders working in diverse sectors. They wrap up with a group community service project and a “College Acceptance Ceremony.” After a successful launch of the program in Los Angeles in the summer of 2010, nearly 500 ASAS students participated in CampUs on six college campuses across the country in 2011. We hope to expand the program to all ASAS cities in 2012. CampUs has been particularly successful in preparing at-risk students for academic and social success in the 9th grade and in fostering their long-term college and career goals.

LIFE SERVICE ACTION

Studies consistently show that students who participate in a service learning program have improved academic performance and positive behavior in school. To enhance student achievement, help students develop as leaders, and inspire participants to engage in their communities, ASAS launched Life Service Action. Through their participation in student led, curriculum-driven service learning projects, ASAS students are exposed to new concepts in learning and develop a stronger sense of social responsibility and civic awareness.

COLLECTIVELY, ASAS STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN OVER 1 MILLION HOURS OF SERVICE THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR. Projects include: disaster preparedness, building school gardens, neighborhood beautification, creating videos to promote healthy eating, raising money for local and national charities, collecting water for earthquake victims in Haiti, serving meals to the homeless, and tutoring other students.

SPORTS AS A HOOK

ASAS recognizes that our students are able to achieve their personal best in school when they are equipped with the tools to lead healthy, active lifestyles. With the help of Fox Sports Network, ASAS launched Sports as a Hook—a unique sports-based youth development program which connects sports activities to lessons on leadership, teamwork, resilience, discipline, nutrition, community service, gender equality, and exposure to nature. ASAS also introduces students to professional athletes, caring coaches, and successful role models in the sports industry who teach students about goal-setting, public speaking, interview skills, career exploration and financial management.

Research indicates that involvement in sports can empower girls to take on leadership roles in the public sphere. Therefore, another component of the program is a focus on engaging more young women in athletics. Through Sports as a Hook, students also design creative ways to incorporate community service into their physical activities. Students connect sports to service learning by leading their own athletic fundraising events and refurbishing local fields and parks. ASAS works closely with the renowned Positive Coaching Alliance to train our coaches on “double goal coaching”—understanding best practices for teaching sports while reinforcing a student’s self-confidence and positive character traits.

Since fitness is only one part of the healthy living equation, nutrition is also incorporated into Sports as a Hook. We cover topics such as caloric intake, distinguishing between healthy and unhealthy foods, and how to buy and cook healthy foods. We also expose students to nature and the outdoors; taking our kids to hike and camp in areas where they may not otherwise have the opportunity to visit, like national parks and beaches.

“SOME KIDS AT MY SCHOOL DON’T HAVE P.E. EVERY DAY BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN CUT. CUTTING P.E. IS NOT GOOD BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT PROVIDING US WITH THE TOOLS OR SKILLS IN ORDER TO STAY FIT.” – Naomi B., 7th Grade

CEO - CAREER EXPLORATION OPPORTUNITIES

Amanda Warren, an 8th grade student, received top honors in the nationwide SKECHERS All-Star Design Competition.

Career Exploration Opportunities, or CEO, is a new financial literacy, career development and entrepreneurialism program created to help students learn to be self-sufficient adults, prepare them for the 21st century economy, and inspire long-term career planning. Students are taught how to budget, save, and spend wisely, as well as what it means to have credit. Investment and economic concepts are explored using virtual stock portfolios and board games. CEO connects youth with community leaders and role models from government, business, and the nonprofit sectors to learn 21st century workplace skills. Students visit local businesses and interview professionals they meet. CEO uses business school case studies to explore how principles learned in the classroom can be applied to real world business problems.

Our students participated in workplace tours and workshops at the following companies:

CEO also incorporates an entrepreneurial component where students learn how to launch a business from start to finish. They’re tasked with identifying a consumer need, conducting market research, identifying competition, developing a business plan, creating a tangible product, finding investors, and marketing their idea. They are also introduced to social entrepreneurship by applying business and economic theories to solve social problems. This allows students to learn hands-on business planning while positively impacting social and economic issues in their community.

NATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND

NATIONAL PROGRAM DIRECTORS RETREAT

ASAS honored our “Hoop Heroes” at the Hoop Heroes Salute Launch Party at Katsuya LA Live during the 2011 NBA All-Star Weekend. The ASAS Board of Directors, ASAS Founder and Honorary Chair Arnold Schwarzenegger, NBA stars LeBron James and Chris Bosh, and numerous NBA athletes and celebrities were in attendance. Reshanda Grey, an ASAS alumna now on a full scholarship at the University of California at Berkeley, gave a heartfelt speech, crediting ASAS for giving her opportunities for a better life.

ASAS National hosted its annual National Program Directors Retreat bringing together 60 program leaders from all of our chapters to share best practices regarding the four National Program Initiatives and to offer workshops on topics such as “Leading Effective Meetings” and “Staff Trainings to Building Partnerships.” In January 2011, all 12 ASAS Executive Directors came together to share creative solutions to common challenges, marketing and fundraising best practices, and to strengthen the ASAS national network.

MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN

BOOST (BEST OF OUT-OF-SCHOOL TIME)

For the third year running, Mammoth Mountain hosted fifty ASAS students for two days of skiing and snowboarding. Arnold Schwarzenegger also attended to ski and spend time with the students. Participants were treated to a special banquet and career panel, where professionals in the hospitality, sports training, food service, marketing, and hotel management industries discussed their career paths and accomplishments.

Last April, ASAS National presented a series of five staff training workshops at the annual BOOST (Best of Out-ofSchool Time) Conference in Palm Springs, California. ASAS offered workshops to hundreds of after-school professionals on each of the four National Program Initiatives as well as a session on “Keys to Successful Partnerships.” ASAS National also used the conference as an opportunity to host a national ASAS CampUs staff training day.

CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE

CAMP US

As a partner of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), ASAS committed to providing high school readiness training, college exposure and career exploration activities through our signature We Are Ready program, for eighth graders at risk of dropping out.

Last summer, in conjunction with the We Are Ready program, ASAS piloted an east coast CampUs. Students from four east coast chapters (Miami, Atlanta, Orlando and Columbus) experienced college life in the dorms and classrooms of Florida International University.

NATIONAL YOUTH ADVISORY BOARD Last summer, ASAS’ National Youth Advisory Board (NYAB) attended a leadership training summit at the University of Chicago where they participated in sessions on team building, public speaking, and advocacy training. The NYAB also advised ASAS National staff on youth programming to ensure student voice and choice is incorporated into each of our initiatives. ASAS’ NYAB is comprised of 15 outstanding 7th and 8th grade students representing each ASAS chapter.

SPORTS INITIATIVES

Hoop Heroes is ASAS’ unique NBA season-long campaign that combines the excitement of pro-basketball with providing quality after-school programming to at-risk youth across the country. Each player commits to raising funds and awareness around the need for after-school programs for underprivileged youth. In addition to fundraising, each athlete spends meaningful time inspiring ASAS children.

In Touchdown vs. Shutdown, NFL athletes nationwide join the ASAS family to help at-risk youth in their local communities. Participating players have the chance to mentor inner-city youth, while providing critical support to after-school programming. This effort gives professional athletes the opportunity to greatly impact their communities both in dollars and in time.
