We invite you to attend Dallas Dreams & Develops, an introduction to the All Stars Project of Dallas on Thursday, February 20, 2014 from 1pm to 5pm at the Dallas City Performance Hall.
Dallas Dreams & Develops is being co-sponsored by SMU's Simmons School of Education and Human Development and the All Stars Project of Dallas, and is bringing together leaders in our city to learn about and discuss our innovative, privately-funded model for youth and community development and the exciting role it is playing in connecting Dallas' diverse communities and providing new opportunities for our city's most disadvantaged citizens.

This summer, we are hiring 10 recent college graduates, or students graduating in the spring of 2014, for a competitive, 10-week summer fellowship program that is designed to challenge them to be self-starters and make a difference - and along the way provide high-level training in community organizing, fundraising, nonprofit management and youth development at a major national nonprofit organization with an outside-the-box approach.
Apply today or spread the word! The final application deadline is Sunday, March 23, 2014, though applicants are encouraged to submit their materials sooner as interviews are currently being conducted and decisions are made on a rolling basis.
Also read inside for information on the Fellowships run by the All Stars Project of the San Francisco Bay Area and by the All Stars Project of Chicago.
