After-School All-Stars (or ASAS) is a national non-profit organization that partners with schools across the United States to expand the learning day for low-income children. Its mission is to provide comprehensive after-school programs that keep children safe and help them achieve in school and in life.  Currently, ASAS serves nearly 92,000 students on over 400 school sites in 14 regions across 10 states.
ASAS history begins in Los Angeles, where, in 1991, ASAS founder Arnold Schwarzenegger was invited to serve as Executive Commissioner of the Inner City Games (ICG) by Daniel Hernandez of the Hollenbeck Youth Center. ICG was a city-wide health and fitness program designed to help at-risk youth develop self-esteem and a sense of personal value. The powerful impact ICG had on its young participants was unmistakable and inspired the creation of the Inner City Games Foundation (ICGF) in 1992.
Between 1992 and 2000, ICGF expanded to 15 additional cities across the country. Based on research, experience and dialogue with law-enforcement, it was clear that the after-school hours were when children needed ASAS most. ICGF transformed its model to provide after-school programming that was offered every day of the school year, supplemented with additional summer programming. In 2003, ICGF was renamed After-School All-Stars to reflect the significant enhancement of programming and holistic approach to extended-day learning.

ASAS currently serves over 92,000 low-income, at-risk youth at 400 Title I schools in 15 major cities across the country: Atlanta, Chicago, Columbus, Dallas, Dayton, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, and Toledo. 93% of ASAS students are minority, 86% qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program (see National School Lunch Act ) and 62% are in the middle school grades.
 Together they championed a national effort found through the Inner-City Games Foundation established in 1995 
For more than 20 years, After-School All-Stars has provided free, high-quality after-school programs to low-income, inner-city youth across the country. Now reaching 92,000 students on over 400 school sites, ASAS is raising the bar and helping students succeed in school and in life. Their goals for their All-Stars are the same goals that many parents have for their own children: to be healthy and active, to graduate high school and go on to college, to find a job that they love and to give back to their communities. ASAS achieves this by identifying and fueling students' individual passions, tying their interests to tailored academic support, enrichment and health and fitness programming.
After-School All-Stars gives its students a safe-haven during the “danger zone” hours of 3pm-6pm—the time of day when youth violence, drug use, and other delinquent behaviors are most likely to occur. By creating caring youth adult relationships and incorporating service learning into all that they do, they help their All-Stars gain the confidence, skills and role models they need to become leaders in their community.
ASAS is the largest school-based after-school program provider in the country.
