After-School All-Stars (ASAS) Tampa Bay provides academic and enrichment programs to children in local middle schools in the Tampa Bay area. We partner with the City of Tampa, Hillsborough County Schools, and local community leaders to create a safe educational environment for our youth. We aim to increase overall attendance and engagement from our students. One of the ways was by planning an ASAS Winter Wonderland dance—word got out fast and before we knew it, everyone wanted to come, so we made it a school wide dance. After the dance, students were inquiring how to be a part of the planning committee for the next dance and we ended up increasing our student intake, engagement, and attendance.
Additionally, ASAS Tampa Bay has gone above and beyond to combat summer learning loss by providing seven weeks of summer programming, including project-based learning, swimming lessons, dance, cooking, sports, art and more. The summer program theme took students on a journey to all the world’s continents, learning customs, geographic features, economics and cultural characteristics.
