ALL STARS ACCELERATOR PROGRAM

Each year, All Stars selects a cohort of innovative Bay Area nonprofits to participate in a three-year intensive program that is designed to help build the organizational capacity, financial sustainability and community impact of those organizations working to disrupt the cycle of poverty for Bay Area youth.

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

In order to achieve true economic and racial equity we must break the cycle of poverty that is preventing far too many youth from achieving their full potential.
