11.3 million children are unsupervised after school in the United States. Afterschool programs help keep kids safe, allow them to develop skills and help working families.
Lights on Afterschool is a nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs. The event is organized by the Afterschool Alliance in order to draw attention to how afterschool programs support students and families.
The Lights on Afterschool event was launched in 2000, and today it boasts more than 8,000 rallies nationwide. This year’s Lights on Afterschool will be held on Oct. 22, and Horizon will participate. We’ll have Halloween-themed activities for children and families.
