The After-School All-Stars (ASAS) mission established at our founding, to give children the tools they need to have successful futures, has remained constant. In 1993 we were founded with a focus on using health and fitness to help at-risk youth get back on track. Today, we are comprehensive after-school providers focused on fueling our students’ passions by tying their interests to academic support, enrichment activities and healthy and fitness programs that instill the confidence and resilience they’ll need for success in school and life.

ASAS Puget Sound
With generous seed funding from the New York Life Foundation, ASAS was able to open a chapter in the Puget Sound region in 2016. In partnership with Kent School District, ASAS Puget Sound first launched programs at Meeker Middle School, where over 200 students were served during the 2016-17 school year. In October 2017, ASAS Puget Sound expanded to its second school site, Dimmitt Middle School of Renton School District. With continued local support, the Puget Sound chapter will expand to at least one school site each year.
New York Life’s investment has provided programming to kids in need of enriching and engaging after-school experiences. ASAS is thrilled to contribute to the work of offering quality education to all children in Washington State.
