Last year, more than one million Americans in thousands of communities across the country celebrated Lights On Afterschool.
On Thursday, October 25th, we'll come together again to make sure parents, policymakers, and communities understand the impact of afterschool programs in keeping kids safe, inspiring them to learn, and giving families peace of mind.
Our Vision: We see Indiana as a place where all K-12 youth have access to high quality learning experiences beyond the school day that prepare them for success in school, college, careers, and life.
ACTION: Start Your Planning TODAY!
We are excited to announce that the Afterschool Alliance registration for Lights On Afterschool 2018 is officially open!
Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide celebration of everything afterschool programs do for students, families and communities across the country. It is an event not only for recognizing the extraordinary value of these programs, but also for putting a spotlight on the need for more funding-for every child who gets to participate in an afterschool program, there are two waiting to get in.
