Global Youth Services Day is the largest, and longest-running, annual day of service, and the only day of service dedicated to engaging and celebrating children and youth.  After-School All-Stars Hawaii is committed to teaching our participants while integrating meaningful service to the community.  All-Star students have learned about the importance of lo’i to native Hawaiians and their culture, and will have the opportunity to experience working in the lo’i, as well as what kind of majors/courses of study they could pursue in college as part of the Hawaiian Studies program at UH Manoa.

 

Founded by Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1990, After-School All-Stars Hawaii’s programs have been designed to prepare middle school youth (6th, 7th, 8th graders) for high school, college, and the 21st century by offering academic support, enrichment opportunities and health/fitness activities.  After-School All-Stars serves 80,000 youth annually through after school and summer programs in 12 chapters across the country.  Hawaii is the newest chapter formed in 2009.  To learn more, visit www.asashawaii.org.
