The vision: that all children have the chance to grow up safe and healthy, go to college, find careers they love, and give back to their communities. ASAS brings these goals within reach for nearly 500 of the Districtís most at-risk youth, providing free, comprehensive after-school programming at six Title I middle schools. From 3-6 pm (when youth violence and drug use are most likely to occur), it offers academic support, enrichment activities, and health and fitness programs Ė a combination known to improve student achievement significantly more than academics alone. Additional initiatives target key issues: high school readiness, career exploration opportunities, and sports activities that double as lessons in topics like leadership, teamwork, and gender equality. Through it all, kids connect with caring adults who believe in their potential for greatness. Part of a national program, this local branch is in high demand: letís help it grow.
