About Atlanta All Stars Talent Show Network
Atlanta All Stars is a non-profit that uses a cutting edge performance-based model of youth and community development pioneered by the All Stars Project over 30 years ago. Atlanta All Stars is building partnerships between young people from Atlanta’s poorest communities, with wealthy Atlanta business leaders to acknowledge and address poverty in the city.
In our programs, performance-based activities create bonds between young people, help them to stretch and discover new possibilities, and increase their self-esteem. They also help to engender a support system within the life of the community, and supports young people to become leaders in their neighborhoods.
Atlanta All Stars is 100% privately funded and relies on individual donors and local corporate partners to support enriching talent shows, workshops and community programs. Contributing to the Atlanta All Stars is an investment in the personal development of our city’s underprivileged youth.
