About this webinar:

This is the first installment of our 6-part Lights On Afterschool webinar series. Lights On Afterschool is a national celebration of the afterschool programs that keeps kids safe, inspire learning and help working families. Every year, more than 1 million Americans attend more than 8,000 Lights On Afterschool events in all 50 states and in the District of Columbia.

In Lights On Afterschool 101 we will show you the basics of planning a successful Lights On Afterschool event. Lights On Afterschool events can be whatever you make them; like afterschool programs, Lights On Afterschool events come in all shapes and sizes and don't have to cost a lot to be effective. In this 30-minute webinar, we will be joined by Afterschool Ambassador Colleen Abbott from the Learning Enriched Afterschool Program (LEAP) in Eldon, Missouri, and with Colleen’s help we will show you how to use our event planning tools and go over all of the basics to help you stay on track with your planning, attract VIPs and work with the media to get your message out.
