21 Years of Lights On Afterschool

21 Years of Lights On Afterschool​ -  Tuesday, September 22nd @ Noon Mountain Time

It's On! This year's Lights On Afterschool celebration will look and feel different, but that won't stop us from having the brightest celebration yet!

Afterschool programs have risen to the moment to provide critical supports for youth and families during the pandemic — from innovative virtual programming to meals to caring for children of essential workers to wellbeing check-ins. We need to celebrate and recognize their efforts, and call attention to the importance of afterschool supports in the school year ahead.

Whether this is your first Lights On Afterschool or your 21st, join us for this webinar to inspire and help you get the most out of your celebration - whether happening in-person or virtually. Hear how some Lights On Afterschool organizers are planning events in their states, and learn about new tools to help you and showcase your event!

Help us make the 21st Annual Lights On Afterschool the biggest celebration yet!
