DISRUPTING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY FOR OVERLOOKED & UNDERSERVED YOUTH

We believe that every youth should have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

All Stars and our portfolio of nonprofit partners work to ensure youth in low-income and marginalized communities have access to quality education and the support needed to go on to college, the skills and resources they need not just to get a job but a career, and that they can stay healthy in body and mind.

OUR FOUNDERS

All Stars Helping Kids was created in 1989, when NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott gathered his friends for a dinner to benefit the local community. Astounded that he had raised $100,000 in one night, Ronnie and his wife, Karen, invested the money in several nonprofits fighting poverty in the South Bay.

Since then, ASHK has used this simple formula of raising money and redistributing it to create opportunities in education, health and life skills for disadvantaged youth.

 

“Life is about the calling to serve, to help another human being. When you help them, that makes you a better teammate. An All Star can be anyone!”
