ASAS DC celebrates the importance of after-school programs

Every October, millions of people across the country come together to
shed light on the importance of after-school programs; an issue that
receives relatively little attention here in Washington, DC and
throughout the country. On October 20th, After-School All-Stars DCyoel chavez
celebrated Lights on Afterschool with over 500 students at our four
partner schools. Highlights from the event include a fashion show at
Stuart Hobson MS, a Hip Hop Musical and HYPE performance at Hart MS, a
healthy cooking demonstration at Cesar Chavez PCS, and an all school
celebration of health, sports, and education at Leckie ES! NBC4 DC
highlighted ASAS DC in an interview with Daniela Grigioni on the
importance of after-school programs for middle school students.
