    The New Jersey All Star Program

    Development School for Youth (DSL)

    Presented by

    Gloria Strickland, Director of the DSL 

    We are excited to invite you to learn more about the NJ All Stars, Development School for Youth (DSL) Program and educating you on how the program can help complement your diversity sourcing strategy for hiring top talent.  Please join us to hear about the success with 100+ employers in NJ currently employing DSL students in their organizations.  The NJ companies currently employing students from the DSL Program are Dun & Bradstreet, Deloitte, Lexis-Nexis, Bank of America, Prudential, PSE&G, Metlife, Chubb & Son, Ernst & Young and Tiffany & Company, just to name a few. 
    The Joseph A. Forgione Development School for Youth (DSY) is a leadership-training program for young people between the ages of 16 and 21 that focuses on development. Every year 200 students, recruited from more than 30 high schools across New York City and Newark, NJ are accepted into the Development School's program on the basis of their desire to be leaders. The program partners with corporate professionals and over 100 major corporations in NY and NJ to provide training experiences for the students and summer internships for the DSY graduates.
    Gloria B. Strickland has a forty-year record of commitment, innovative leadership and service to New Jersey's inner-city communities.  Strickland is currently the director of the Development School for Youth and Associate Dean of UX, core afterschool program initiatives of the non-profit All Stars Project (ASPNJ), continuing a decade of extraordinary leadership and work in establishing the organization's independent and "out of the box" developmental afterschool model in Newark and surrounding communities.
    Under Strickland's leadership, the All Stars Project has become a New Jersey success story, reaching 2,000 poor youths annually with high quality and popular after-school programs, supported by more than 1,000 individuals and corporations.  Strickland has recruited and trained a talented team of program leaders and is now helping to lead an expansion initiative that includes the opening in Newark of a multi-million dollar, 9,000 square ft. All Stars Center for Afterschool Development.  The Scott Flamm Center for Afterschool Development will be a new kind of development institution in New Jersey and nationally, supporting new kinds of relationships between New Jersey's poor and affluent communities and implementing breakthroughs that can bring development and growth into the lives of tens of thousands of young people, their families and communities.
    Meet Gloria Strickland and find out about the Development School for Youth, the innovative program where inner-city young people partner with business professionals, develop professional performances and perform successfully in fulltime, paid summer internships throughout New Jersey and New York. Learn how performance, development and this very unique business partnership leads to success for all involved.
