After-School All-Stars (ASAS) Chicago recently added a new program component to the Career Exploration Opportunities initiative. The chapter tirelessly works to introduce All-Stars students to vocational jobs. Thanks to generous funding from the Mike Rowe Foundation and Windsong, the Show Your Work program focuses on Construction Management, and Advanced Manufacturing. Students learn from skilled educators and industry experts about topics like, automation, robotics, and 3-D printing.

Cameron Nelson joined ASAS Chicago as Executive Director after many years spent working in professional sports and fundraising. Her belief that “all kids are our kids” drives her work to ensure Chicago All-Stars have the same opportunities as those with proper resources. A Tennessean by birth, she now calls Chicago home with her husband, Paris, but you can bet she’ll be cheering on her Tennessee Vols every Saturday in the Fall.
