What caught my attention about After-School All-Stars many years ago was the way the program instills entrepreneurial skills in their students. As the founder of Westime, I know firsthand the challenges that come with starting a business and I was inspired to see Arnold Schwarzenegger, the ultimate business man, spearheading this work.
Moreover, I vividly remember having big dreams but not being sure exactly how to achieve them when I was about the age of the kids in our program. I find it inspiring that the kids we serve are being given the opportunity to hone skills that can help them tangibly achieve their goals.
I’m so passionate about this cause that for the past five years, we’ve teamed up with Arnold Schwarzenegger to host a charity night that has raised over $5MM for the program. And I’m proud that my son, Greg, President of Westime, joins me in supporting ASAS through this event and throughout the year. It’s truly family affair.
