Tia Carrere, actress, model and singer who was born and raised in Hawaii and is widely known for her role in blockbuster films True Lies, Wayne’s World and Rising Sun, and most recently a contestant on Dancing With the Stars, will be visiting with students enrolled in the After-School All-Stars (ASAS) Hawaii program at Jarrett Middle School. Carrere is in Hawaii to attend ASAS Hawaii’s inaugural All-Star Affair this Saturday as a fundraiser for the non-profit organization.
ASAS Hawaii is a new non-profit organization currently serving five middle schools on Oahu: Dole and Kalakaua Middle Schools in Kalihi; King Intermediate in Kaneohe; Jarrett Middle School in Palolo; and Washington Middle School in Honolulu. The organization’s mission is to provide quality comprehensive after-school programs that keep 6th, 7th, 8th graders out of trouble and help them succeed in school and in life.
Founded by Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1990, the programs have been designed to prepare middle school youth for high school, college, and the 21st century by offering academic support, enrichment opportunities and health/fitness activities. After-School All-Stars serves 70,000 youth annually through after school and summer programs in 13 chapters across the country.
