After-School All-Stars Receives $3.8 Million in Grant Funding, In-Kind Services to Continue Programs in Local Schools

The College of Education’s After-School All-Stars Atlanta program received a one-year, $950,000 grant from the Georgia Department of Human Services to continue its programs in local schools.

After-School All-Stars Atlanta, which provides comprehensive after-school programs for at-risk students, also received $2.85 million in in-kind services from the Atlanta Public School System, bringing the total grant award to $3.8 million.

The program has 15 independent after-school sites, 11 of which are in urban middle schools. The remaining programs are in three of Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed’s Centers of Hope and at the City of Refuge, which offers transitional housing for home-less women with children. Teachers who are recruited from within their home schools offer homework assistance, tutoring and enrichment programs to students who attend.

Walt Thompson, College of Education associate dean for graduate studies and research and After-School All-Stars Atlanta executive director, said grant funding is a crucial part of offering after-school programs to children in Atlanta.

“This grant represents the fifth year of substantial funding from the Georgia Department of Human Services,” said Thompson, who is also a Regents’ Professor in the college’s Department of Kinesiology and Health. “This funding, along with other grants and gifts, will enable almost 2,500 students to participate in a comprehensive after-school program every day of the school year and during the summer.”
