Ben Paul is president and CEO of After-School All-Stars, a national nonprofit organization providing free daily afterschool programs to nearly ninety thousand low-income children in ten states, from New York to Hawaii. During his ten-year tenure as COO and then CEO, Paul has overseen the expansion of program operations from forty-five to nearly four hundred schools. He has expanded the organization's focus from sports to the three pillars of academics, enrichment, and health and fitness. Today, ASAS is one of the largest national afterschool program providers solely focused on comprehensive school-based programs.
We had a blast at the 2014 convention blast in New York City! Over 2,200 attendees from across the country gathered to learn, network, and share.
The convention kicked off with special performances by Broadway stars. Google's Jaime Casap gave a keynote presentation on the power and potential of the web, technology, and Google tools in education.
There was an abundance of learning and sharing with over 150 engaging workshop sessions, 20 poster presentations, and 10 Ignite sessions. We explored NYC with over 15 site visits to some of New York City's top cultural landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty, the Met, and The Electric Company (among many others!).

On Tuesday, March 10, we're teaming up with the Afterschool Alliance and afterschool professionals from around the country to meet face to face with members of Congress and urge them to support kids and families who rely on afterschool programs.
If you can't make it to DC, but still want to help:
Congress need to hear from constituents like you who care about making afterschool for all a reality. In the coming months we'll be sharing everything you need to reach out from home, including sample scripts and a guide for planning a district meeting with your local Congressional office, courtesy of the Afterschool Alliance. Check back for more updates.
Use the hash tag #Invest3to6 to encourage your representatives to support afterschool and the Afterschool for All Challenge.
Last year, participants from 46 states met with their senators and representatives to talk about the many ways afterschool programs support children, families, school and communities, and to urge them to support the Afterschool for America's Children Act. Hundreds more afterschool supporters participated in the event from their own communities.
Make plans to join us in DC today!
