Lights On After School-October 17th

Lights On After School is a national day set aside to recognize and celebrate after school programs. This day offers an opportunity for our after school community to build relationships and visibility on a local level. Celebrating Lights On After School contributes to the strong, unified message about the importance of after school in Pennsylvania.  So join 7,500 communities and 1 million Americans in celebrating after school programs at the After School Alliance’s 14th annual Lights On After School!

The after school world has made the Lights On After School a truly nationwide celebration of after school programs and a hallmark of the field. We celebrate this day to recognize the critical importance of quality after school programs in the lives of children, their families and their communities. It reminds us of the great services after school programs provide keeping our children safe, inspire learning and relieving working parents of worries about their children’s afternoons. Every year brings more events, more creativity and most important more attention to the need for after school resources. We thank you and invite you to join us in celebrating the 14th annual Lights On After School this October 17, 2013.
