“The first-ever Stars Variety Show in 2021 was a huge success and a truly special evening for our community,” said Sara Amberg, executive director for YouthPower365. “We can’t wait to build upon the variety show model and show off some of the unique talents within our community. YouthPower365 provides programs from early childhood to college and career — it’s amazing to see how far your support can go in making the valley a better place for our youth.”
As the sole beneficiary of the Stars Variety Show, YouthPower365 depends on the generosity of donors to provide quality learning opportunities for children ages 3-18 throughout the year. Less than 2% of the organization’s revenue derives from fees, because no family is ever turned away from programs due to financial circumstances.
YouthPower365 employs more than 130 local part-time coaches, interns, educators and mentors to help youth reach their full potential through a wide continuum of programs including Magic Bus mobile preschool, PwrHrs afterschool, The Steadman Clinic COPA soccer, Girl PowHER, The CLUB and more.
The Stars Variety Show’s presenting sponsors are Amy & Steve Coyer and Ann Smead & Michael Byram. The annual evening tends to raise over $1 million to support YouthPower365.
