 Lights on Afterschool

Join us in celebrating the Lights On Afterschool Day on October 28th, 2021. Lights On Afterschool is the nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families, and communities. It draws attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to explore interests and build new skills.

Despite the uncertainty and challenges, afterschool programs have risen to the moment to support youth, and are critical supports to help youth recover from this challenging time and address their academic, social, and emotional needs. GSAN has created a toolkit for you to use for your celebration using the hashtags #LightsOnAfterschool and #GaLightsOn. You can also use the hashtag #ThisIsAfterschool to raise awareness of the wide variety of programming offered by afterschool programs. If you are hosting a Lights On Afterschool event, please register here and mark your calendars for Lights on Afterschool 2021 on October 28th!
