The Activists for Social Development Fellowship is a competitive eight week program for recent college graduates who want to be part of building the field of Afterschool Development as a new approach to fighting poverty in our country. 

Program Overview

With a 37-year history of grassroots organizing of diverse communities, the All Stars Project Inc. (ASP) is opening its doors to a select group of entrepreneurial and growth-oriented college graduates for a crash course in fundraising, community organizing, youth development and activism.

Born out of the community organizing cauldron of the 1960s, ASP has grown into a nonprofit organization nationally recognized as a leader in the field of Afterschool Development. ASP’s mission is to transform the lives of youth and poor communities using the developmental power of performance, in partnership with caring adults.

Our free, outside-of-school programs—which are 100% privately funded—reach more than 20,000 inner-city youth and families, and thousands of adults in six cities each year. In ASP programs, people learn new performances, both on and off the stage; they try new things, become more worldly, and in doing so, begin to create new possibilities for themselves and their communities. Seeing and acting on new possibilities is development, and it’s what All Stars is all about.

All Stars Project, Inc. is hiring 10 recent college graduates, or students graduating in the spring of 2018, for a competitive, eight-week, paid summer fellowship program that is designed to challenge them to be self-starters and make a difference – and along the way provide high-level training in fundraising, community organizing, nonprofit management, and youth development at a major national nonprofit organization with an outside-the-box approach.

Many Activists for Social Development Fellows have gone on to be hired full or part-time for the All Stars Project, Inc. 2018 fellows will be considered highly for any positions that may be available after the summer.
