United, After-School All-Stars Las Vegas (ASASLV), and United Way of Southern Nevada (UWSN) are helping students like J succeed! J joined the After-School All-Stars program this year with a focus on Mariachi. J is the only harp player in her ensemble and was determined to improve her skills. She attends the program every school day to reach her goal of becoming the best harp player she can be. When she first started playing the harp in 7th grade, she struggled with playing the instrument, but through hard work and determination was able to increase her skills. J is grateful to After-School All-Stars and United Way of Southern Nevada for giving her the space she needed to practice more than ever before and take pride in being the only harp player in her Mariachi band. J shared, “All Stars has impacted me because every day that I have practiced, I can see my progress get better every day. I enjoy ASAS because I learn new things.”  

Together, UWSN and ASASLV are helping students like J succeed both in and outside the classroom! By donating to UWSN, you can help us continue to support local programs like After-School All-Stars that help students expand their skills beyond the classroom and explore their passions.
