Inner City Games Foundation

Between 1992 and 2000, Inner City Games Foundation (ICGF) expanded to 15 additional cities across the country.ᅠ Based on research, experience and dialogue with law-enforcement, it was clear that the after-school hours were when our children needed us most.

PRESENT

ASAS gives its students a safe-haven during the danger zone hours of 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. – the time of day when youth violence, drug use, and other delinquent behaviors are mostly likely to occur. We provide effective and thoughtful support to fight against the high school dropout and obesity crises and prepare our students for fulfilling careers in the modern workforce. ASAS-LA serves 14,000 students in 39 schools, 99% of whom are youth of color and 88% of whom qualify for the Federal Free and Reduced Meal Program. We are a part of a national network that operates 17 chapters in 11 states and Washington, DC. We operate in 326 Title I schools and serve over 72,000 students annually with national headquarters in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.
