    The All Stars Project (ASP) is a growing national nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of youth from poor and underserved communities using the developmental power of performance, in partnership with caring adults, giving everyone the opportunity to grow. While the ASP’s afterschool programs include hip-hop talent shows, training in theatre and the arts, and programs where we partner with the business community to help young people create a professional performance, we are doing so much more – we are building community and imagining possibility. Founded in 1981, the ASP is headquartered in New York City, and currently operates in five locations across the United States (New York, New Jersey, San Francisco Bay Area, Chicago, and Dallas). The ASP is primarily privately funded, with two-thirds of our support coming from individuals.

    The ASP of Dallas, launched in 2013, is a rapidly growing region of the All Stars Project, and is an established leader in the community and in the field of Afterschool Development. The Director will partner with Vice President and City Leader, Antoine Joyce. Together, they will focus on expanding opportunities in organizing the city and its corporate community, industry leaders, and caring adults to join our mission to grow the lives of young people and everyone we reach. We invite young people from underserved communities such as West Dallas, South Oak Cliff, and South Dallas to perform in new ways, on stage and off, in building bridges to opportunity and corporate America.
