Philadelphia Camden – Programs

Slide background

our programs

After-School All-Stars Philadelphia & Camden offers a holistic approach to extended-day learning and helps youth develop the necessary life skills (attributes, attitudes, and characteristics) to succeed in school and beyond.

Our All-Stars participate in activities that develop their skills, build their desire for mastery, and increase their levels of engagement. Research shows that a combination of academics, enrichment activities, and healthy lifestyles improve student achievement significantly more than academics alone.

Our curriculum is structured around five core programs: academic readiness, visual & performing arts, STEM learning, health & wellness, and career exploration. Our All-Stars enjoy watershed education–an immersive, experiential STEM program centered on our local ecosystem.
