All Stars Project, Inc.

The All Stars Project (ASP) is a nationally-recognized, independently funded non-profit that was founded 37 years ago. Our mission is to transform the lives of youth and poor communities, using the developmental power of performance. The All Stars Talent Show Network (ASTSN) provides young people with an opportunity to produce and perform in hip-hop talent shows in their neighborhoods. Every young person that auditions - between the ages of 5 and 25 - makes the show and talent isn’t a requirement!

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with community outreach and support with the production of the auditions and performance itself. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone who is passionate about providing opportunities for growth and personal development for our inner-city youth. Hours are ongoing, varied, and flexible.

All Stars Talent Show Network, now in its 30th year, uses a "performance-learning" approach to foster the emotional and social development of young people. Each year, thousands of urban youth between the ages of 5 and 25 participate in several dozen All Stars events including auditions, rehearsals, talent shows and development workshops.

The Joseph A. Forgione Development School for Youth is a leadership training and career education program for young people ages 16-21. It is at the forefront of a new trend in education, known as supplemental education, that recognizes non-school-based learning opportunities as critical to children's success in school and in life.

The Castillo Theatre is an independently-funded experimental off-off Broadway theatre on 42nd Street that produces postmodern political theatre, exploring contemporary topics in ways that are both thought-provoking and entertaining. It offers our diverse audiences new ways of seeing social issues, historical events, and contemporary life.

Youth Onstage! is developing the city' s new generation of political theatre artists. YO! involves young people who want to create theatre that has something to say about the world.

Operation Conversation: Cops & Kids is a partnership with the New York City Police Department. It brings young people from poor communities together with police officers in performance workshops where they learn to listen to one another and create a new kind of relationship.

UX is a free, university-style school of continuing development. It has classes workshops and field trips that are open to people of all ages.
