Every October 1 million Americans come together at more than 8,000 Lights On Afterschool events across the nation. Holding an event is an excellent way to build support for your program, by letting leaders and policymakers see firsthand how you are supporting kids and families in your community.
Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. LOA 2021 focuses on the tremendous role that afterschool programs have had in helping youth recover from the effects of the pandemic and forge bright futures.
Tell us how you plan to celebrate! When you register your event as an official LOA celebration, you will receive an event starter kit, which includes 10 free posters to help you promote your event, and make you eligible for cool prizes each week.
