Lights On Afterschool 2017

October 26, 2016 is Lights On Afterschool (LOA). LOA is a nationwide event organized by the Afterschool Alliance that draws attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things—such as science, community service, robotics, Tae Kwon Do and poetry—and discover new skills. The events send a powerful message that millions more kids need quality afterschool programs. Visit the LOA website to register your afterschool event.
