History

After-School All-Stars was a Los Angeles-based initiative founded in 1993 by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to positively influence at-risk youth. Today, After-School All-Stars serves over 90,000 kids in 13 regions across the country: Atlanta, Chicago, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York, North Texas, Ohio, Orlando, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco Bay Area and South Florida.

In 1995, Mayor Glenda E. Hood brought together local businesses and committed community leaders to bring the program to Orlando. Mayor Hood appointed the late Commissioner Betty T. Wyman as chairperson and she was re-appointed by current Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. Commissioner Wyman worked tirelessly to expand the program and after her retirement from City Council, she served as Executive Director until her passing in the summer of 2011.

Today

Orlando ASAS serves over 2,000 kids annually at eight middle school program sites within the City of Orlando. We utilize an innovative and diversified curriculum designed to impact academic achievement, promote healthy living and foster civic leadership. As a non-profit organization, Orlando ASAS works in partnership with the City of Orlando, Orange County Public Schools and a variety of community businesses, state agencies and civic organizations.
