Mission

The mission of the After-School All-Stars Las Vegas is to provide free comprehensive out-of-school programs that keep children safe and help them achieve in school and life. Our purpose is to provide at-risk youth the opportunity to participate in sports, educational, cultural and community enrichment programs; to build confidence and self-esteem; to encourage youth to say "no" to gangs, drugs, and violence, and "yes" to hope, learning and life.

Services

Our programs are based on 3 pillars which include Academics, Enrichment and Health & Fitness. Programs vary slightly at each school based on need. Popular programs include homework helpers, dance and ballet, soccer, Media All-Stars, Camp MakeBelieve Kids, Power Hour, chess, Mariachi, Mad Science, swimming, cultural arts - and more.
