Lights On Afterschool Registration is Open
Last year’s Lights On Afterschool celebration included 8,200 events held across the USA and the world, making it the brightest year ever. One million people joined together to shine a light on the amazing work that afterschool programs are doing to improve the lives of youth and families in their communities—and it’s more important than ever to share those stories across the country!
This year, the Afterschool Alliance is connecting programs with elected officials to show community leaders how afterschool works; amplifying the important work that out-of-school time programs do for health and wellness; showcasing the amazing science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) learning opportunities in afterschool; and celebrating the partnerships between OST programs and libraries across the country.
