Every day in the United States as many as 15 million children leave school with no place to go. And every day many of these at risk youth are involved in crimes, join gangs, or experiment with drugs, alcohol or sex.
After School All Stars offers a proven alternative for these children. We engage them in activities and on-going relationships that increase confidence and encourage success in all areas of their lives - at home, in school and in the community.
This is a great opportunity to join other Bay Area residents in helping at risk youth.
