After-School All-Stars

About

ASAS implements the “We Are Ready” (WAR) middle to high school transition program, containing fun, interactive activities on such topics as high school readiness, organization & study skills, options after high school, career exploration and parent/family engagement. WAR culminates with “CampUs,” a free, high school transition summer camp for outgoing 8th graders, held at a local college campus. CampUs is designed to  teach students important study, leadership and college application skills while connecting them to role-model mentors from their community.

How can volunteers engage in the above initiative?

ASAS welcomes volunteers interested in being guest speakers or panelists to discuss their high school/college journey and promote the importance of high school graduation. These opportunities are available during the summer (“CampUs”) as well as throughout the academic year.

About

Beginning with the example set by our National Youth Advisory Board, comprised of one student from each of our 13 chapters (stretching from New York to Honolulu), ASAS empowers students to plan, lead and execute Service-Learning projects through our “Life. Service. Action” initiative.
Our chapters offer 6-10 week enrichment courses teaching students about service-learning through the IPARDC process, promoting active participating in the semester of service (MLK, Cesar Chavez, GYSD), and fostering the development of local, middle-school based service-learning clubs called “Entourage.”

How can volunteers engage in the above initiative?

ASAS welcomes volunteers interested in joining students in service-learning projects throughout the year. Volunteers may help advertise events, host service-learning projects, help recruit participants (co-workers, family, friends), and provide transportation to increase turnout.

About

ASAS’ CEO (Career Exploration Opportunities) curriculum is designed to help students develop skills in the areas of personal finance, entrepreneurship, leadership & problem-solving, communication and professionalism. Students, for example, analyze Harvard Case Studies to discuss, act out, and identify problems as well as discuss solutions. Students also participate in field trips and visit businesses or shadow professionals, learning more about leadership in the workplace, how to create and run a small business, and what professional conduct entails.

How can volunteers engage in the above initiative?

ASAS welcomes volunteers interested in being guest speakers/panelists, hosting a field trip or inviting students to “shadow” them in the workplace. Volunteers may also conduct workshops/activities centered around financial planning, leadership, effective communication, marketing, budgeting, etc.
