Launched in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement and generates awareness in local communities and media coverage across the country each year.

Today, more than 8,000 Lights On Afterschool rallies are held annually, drawing attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students. The events send a powerful message that millions more kids need quality afterschool programs.
