The All Stars Project gives people the experiences they need to both build bridges and to cross them. Utilizing the ground breaking and innovative discoveries of the power of play and performance to reinitiate growth and development, the All Stars Project with programs in New York City, Newark, Chicago, Bridgeport, CT, the San Francisco Bay Area and now Dallas has been a creative and cultural force in developing young people and adults from disadvantaged communities. Participants in the All Stars learn to build new kinds of communities that bring poor people together with those from middle class and more affluent backgrounds. In the All Stars Project, everyone performs and gives, and by doing so, develops. The All Stars Project not only creates bridges, but gives people the key tool of performance that they need to cross them. Dallas has beautiful bridges, both old and new. Let s cross them, in all directions, so we can develop together.
4 All Stars Project of Dallas Programs In the All Stars Talent Show Network (ASTSN), young people ages 5-25 perform in and produce hip-hop talent shows. Cheered on by audiences of family members, neighbors and volunteers, they perform as rappers, singers and dancers and participate in auditions, rehearsals and development workshops. Young People Building Bridges Across Dallas (YBBAD) is a leadership program where young leaders ages participate in workshops led by top professionals in business, finance and performing arts. They learn how to successfully perform in every aspect of life and gain skills and experiences necessary to become a leader at school and/or in the community. What our young people say Daimon Woods, 17 West Dallas All Stars Talent Show Network Alumni and Young People Building Bridges Across Dallas graduate, 2014 Hezakaya Steele,17 South Oak Cliff Young People Building Bridges Across Dallas graduate, 2014 The All Stars Project is the bridge that you cross from being your usual self to a new self and taking what you experience and leading your community to your bridge. In YBBAD young people learn how to communicate and build relationships with others so they can be successful and teach others how to be successful. Sandra Hernandez,17 Desoto Young People Building Bridges Across Dallas graduate, 2014 Dominique English,18 West Dallas All Stars Talent Show Network volunteer The All Stars Project impacted who I want to be in life. I learned that it is important to open up myself and express myself, because you can open yourself up to new possibilities. Being a part of the All Stars gave me a chance to give back to my community and something to do. I like that because it also helps kids stay out of trouble.
5 All Stars Project of Dallas Partners Hunter and Stephanie Hunt Chairs, All Stars Project of Dallas Advisory Committee We really love the sense of bridge building that the All Stars Project brings to the community. We can t talk about a broader community if we don t have everybody in the community involved. The All Stars demands that everybody get in a room and talk and build those bridges. David Chard Dean of the Annette Caldwell Simmons School of Education and Human Development at Southern Methodist University I am convinced that the launch of the All Stars Project, is something very big for our city. In the education sector, we ve known that educational attainment is impacted by poverty and impacts poverty. We are good at looking at the measurement of academic achievement and academic outcomes for our students, but we have not been as good at how we examine youth development and its impact on poverty and the way it s impacted by poverty. That s the kind of inquiry done by the All Stars Project and it s important that we engage in this kind of questioning. Now that they are here and in our city, we can have a different kind of conversation about how to help our students and our communities - and I am very much looking to be a part of that. David White VP of Finance, Sharyland Utilities To break the cycle of poverty for a child, sometimes all you need to do is change their trajectory in life. The All Stars Project provides the child with the tools and motivations to change that trajectory in a positive way. Hank Neely Partner, EY Simply put, the All Stars Project is about changing young people s lives by developing life skills and exposing them to opportunities they may not otherwise see. ASP is already having a meaningful impact in Dallas, which will become even greater as All Stars reach grows and expands.
