Green Living in the inner-city

After-School All-Stars, Los Angeles (ASAS-LA) is a leading after-school program provider whose programs educate, enlighten and inspire thousands of students each day through after-school activities centered around health, fitness and nutrition; the visual and performing arts; and youth leadership and community service learning. ASAS-LA brings innovative, cutting-edge enrichment programs to K-12 students that contribute to reducing drug use, crime and violence; while increasing their safety during the after school hours. Our organization serves 5,000 students daily across 36 schools located in deserving areas throughout LA County. Kobe Bryant is an ASAS-LA Program Ambassador.

Our students come from families and communities with limited means; though the children are learning that artist expression can exist in a variety of forms.–Students in our Recycled Arts program are taking random household materials and creating wonderful works of art and reusable items; including handbags made out of recycled denim, recycled fashions made out of old cloth, and wallets made out of baseball cards & tape.

The students in our program are reducing their impact from households with little consumption, it’s our hope that more affluent areas can do the same. After-School All-Stars gives our kids the direction, exposure and hope for a brighter future.
