More than 1 million Americans celebrate Lights On Afterschool at 8,000+ events across the country.
On October 6, we kicked off Lights On Afterschool with Learn Fresh, the Golden State Warriors and the Sacramento Kings! Youth competed in a special NBA Math Hoops tournament, and then enjoyed a Warriors vs. Kings game. Winners of the tournament were recognized during the game.
Launched in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their role in keeping kids safe, inspiring them to learn and helping working families. The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement and annually sees more than 1 million Americans celebrate at more than 8,000 events nationwide.
“As we celebrate the 18th year of Lights On Afterschool, we are working to ensure that many more students have fun, engaging hands-on learning opportunities after school.” - Jodi Grant, Afterschool Alliance
