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 tons of media each year. There are hundreds of events planned in Florida to celebrate afterschool. Lights on Afterschool will be celebrated nationally on Thursday, October 22nd and in support of activities throughout the state, Governor Rick Scott issued a proclamation designating the day, as Lights On Afterschool Day in Florida!
