After-School All-Stars (ASAS) Puget Sound actively strives to fulfill Greater Seattle’s need for comprehensive after-school programs tailored for under-resourced middle school youth. In addition to homework help and tutoring, we offer a variety of enrichment and wellness programs for students to select from, including DJ/music production, coding and game design, outdoor education, dance, career exploration, cooking, cultural arts, service-learning, sports, yoga, photography, and more. We also coordinate several field trips throughout the school year as part of our career exploration initiative. For instance, students in our after-school programs have visited the Seattle Police Department, Virginia Mason Athletic Center (Seahawks headquarters), 5th Avenue Theater, Microsoft Gaming Studios, Amazon headquarters, Beecher’s Foundation Pure Food Kids Workshop, Alaska Airlines Aviation Day, Camp Waskowitz, One Mind Yoga Issaquah, T-Mobile Tech Experience Center, and more. These unique, enriching experiences help students develop the hard and soft skills they need to build resilience and create their own paths to success.
