After-School All-Stars (ASAS) recognized a $300,000 three-year national grant from Misha Malyshev, CEO of Teza Technologies, at the National After-School Summit on March 24, 2015. ASAS co-hosted the event with the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy and Afterschool Alliance to demonstrate the importance of after-school programs.
Malyshev said, “We applaud ASAS’ dedication to preparing at-risk students for future success. We are committed to supporting several of the organization’s after-school programs and helping communities across the country and in Chicago.”
The National After-School Summit brought together leaders from local and state government, law enforcement, technology, business and philanthropy. Speakers included former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, former U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige, USC Sol Price School of Public Policy Dean Jack Knott, Google’s Director of Education and University Relations Maggie Johnson, and Evernote’s CEO Phil Libin. They discussed the importance of protecting and expanding public and private support for after-school programs at the local, state and national level.
On Tuesday, March 24, leaders from education, afterschool, government, business, and nonprofits from throughout the United States will convene at the University of Southern California (USC) to discuss the importance of comprehensive afterschool programs in K-12 education, outcomes being achieved and the needs yet unmet. The aim of the Summit, organized by the USC Schwarzenegger Institute, the Afterschool Alliance and the After-School All-Stars, is to acknowledge the important work being done in the field, and encourage greater support for afterschool programs from cities, states, federal government and the private sector.
