 Lights on Afterschool

Join us in celebrating the Lights On Afterschool Day on October 22nd, 2020. 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 of this year, afterschool programs rose to the moment - supporting students and families by providing needed meals, childcare for essential workers, and high-quality virtual learning experiences when schools were forced to close. 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, whether virtual or in-person, please register here and mark your calendars for Lights on Afterschool 2020 on October 22nd!
