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 media coverage across the country each year. It is sponsored through the Afterschool Alliance. There is a particular emphasis on targeted advocacy towards elected officials, who are invited to these events (along with parents, and school district officials).
