About Us

Founded in 1992, ASAS is celebrating two decades of empowering youth across the nation. The mission established at our founding, to give children the tools they need to have successful futures, has remained constant. How we fulfill that mission has evolved. We started in Los Angeles with 40,000 youth competing in summer time athletic and academic competitions, and now we provide comprehensive out-of-school time programs to 72,053 participants at 326 schools.


Every day, we work to address the most prevalent and pressing issues facing our youth. As we embark on our third decade, we will strive to make sure ASAS participants are safe and healthy, graduate from high school and go on to college, find a career that they love, and give back to the community.
