Celebrating Lights On Afterschool - 2021!
Launched in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide initative specifically dedicated to celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities.
The initiative is lead by the National; Afterschool Alliance and is designed to attract attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students and communities. The events, and media coverage that place across the country send a powerful message that our communities must continue to support accessible and high-quality afterschool programs for our youth!
