Volunteer with After-School All-Stars: The Climb 4 Kids at 4 World Trade Center
After-School All-Stars (ASAS) provides out-of-school-time programming at under-resourced schools, working to close the opportunity gap by providing students with the tools, experiences, and resources necessary for achievement both in and out of the classroom.
Every school day, ASAS gives students a free safe haven during the “danger zone” hours of 3pm-6pm – the time of day when youth violence, drug use, and other delinquent behaviors are mostly likely to occur.
Being school-based allows the staff to collaborate with faculty and school leadership to support each student’s academic progress in his/her core subjects as well as individual behavior, attendance, test scores, and grades.
This fall, they will be expanding to 2 additional middle schools in New York City, serving an additional 270 students, bringing their total number of students served to over 1,000 kids every day. Students that do not currently have school-based after-school program will be provided a safe environment that will expose them to new interests and opportunities that will contribute to their current and future successes.
This Fall, After-School All-Stars is holding the Climb 4 Kids at 4 World Trade Center on October 22nd. As their inaugural, annual fundraiser, they have the goal to raise $130,000. The dollars needed to transport their All-Stars to local businesses (YES Network, Google, Whole Foods, Rutgers, etc.) for career visits, salaries for support staff, and office costs are not completely covered by this funding. This is why the Climb 4 Kids fundraiser is essential to the work.
After-School All-Stars is recruiting volunteers to help manage the event. Volunteer roles include:
– Set-up and breakdown
– Supporting climbers as they climb 4 WTC (Cheering, serving water and snacks)
Date: October 22, 2015
Time: 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm
