After-School All-Stars Helps Kids Be Successful in the Future
Regional Executive Director Dax-Devlon Ross explains how the program keeps urban youth safe, fed, smart and active.
After-School All-Stars is dedicated to guiding kids in low-income households to make healthy choices in terms of how they spend their time, how they are in school, physical activity and socializing. Dax-Devlon Ross, Executive Director of the Northeast Chapters, sits down with Joanna Gagis to discuss how the program keeps youth active and productive during after-school hours, a time at which crime tends to spike in their target areas. Ross talks about building relationships with every new city the program tries to serve.

After-School All-Stars has locales in Paterson, Newark and potentially Camden in the near future.
