The All Stars Project is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the lives of youth and poor communities using the developmental power of performance, in partnership with caring adults.

The All Stars Project believes development never stops! That's why we launched Connected Community, to extend the long-term impact of the Development School for Youth for our alumni (most of whom join the program while still in high school) and create greater networking and recruitment opportunities for our corporate partners who seek to hire our alumni once they complete college.

Connected Community

Connected Community was created to continue providing opportunities for development for our alumni and corporate partners. Connected Community connects alumni who are out of school and looking for opportunities with companies interested in hiring a diverse workforce and giving opportunity to the talented young people who have completed our program.

About the Development School for Youth

In the Development School for Youth (DSY), young people, ages 16 to 21, learn to perform as professionals by partnering with business leaders across the country who conduct workshops and provide paid summer internships at their companies. Our youth come out of the program and their summer internships ready to perform and succeed in the business world – before they even enter college!

Each year, nearly 2,000 professionals from over 350 companies share their time and expertise with our youth. We are proud that our corporate partners include EY, MetLife, JPMorgan, Viacom, PSEG, and so many more.

Connected Community helps companies:

Connect with DSY alumni once they graduate from college and start looking for opportunities.

Diversify their teams by hiring diverse, talented candidates.

Hire with confidence: know they are hiring a high-quality applicant who has gone through the rigorous DSY program and completed a summer internship.
