Lights On Afterschool

Launched in 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. Lights On Afterschool is a great time to celebrate the successes of your afterschool program and showcase those successes to parents, community leaders, local businesses, policymakers, and the media.
