Lights on Afterschool 2016
Join GSAN, Voices for Georgia’s Children, and afterschool programs across the state in celebrating the importance of afterschool on Georgia’s youth on October 20th, 2016. Throughout the week of October 17th, afterschool programs will celebrate the value of quality programs beyond the school day that are so important in shaping the values, relationships, and career decisions of young people with Georgia’s annual Lights On Afterschool Day. This event, which is part of the Afterschool Alliance’s 17th annual nationwide Lights On Afterschool, calls attention to the importance of afterschool programs and the resources required to keep the lights on and the doors open. In 2015, over 200 afterschool programs registered celebrations — the 8th most in the nation! Let’s try to beat that this year!
