Celebrate the 18th annual Lights On Afterschool Oct. 25, 2018!
Launched on October 2000, Lights On Afterschool
is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs
and their important role in the lives of children, families, and communities.
The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement and
generates media coverage across the country each year.
The Afterschool Alliance organizes Lights On Afterschool to draw attention
to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them
opportunities to learn new things—such as science, community service,
robotics, Tae Kwon Do, and poetry—and discover new skills. The events send a
powerful a message that millions of more kids need quality afterschool programs.
