More about Lights On Afterschool…

Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. The first Lights On Afterschool celebration, a project of theAfterschool Alliance, was launched in October 2000 with celebrations in 1,200 communities all over the country.  Today, more than 7,500 Lights On Afterschool rallies are held annually, attracting 1 million Americans.

Host your Own Event:  We encourage programs to host their own events. The Afterschool Alliance has a great event planning kit available online which will walk you through the process and makes it easy to take part in the celebrations. Lights On Afterschool events, like afterschool and youth development programs, come in all shapes and sizes, from stadium rallies and town parades to open houses and program tours. Celebrate in a manner that works best for your program and community.

Be sure to register your event and put Washington State on the map. We want to make sure that programs across our state are celebrating nationally as part of Lights On Afterschool.
