Lights On! Afterschool 2020 Was a Big Success - Video Contest Winners

"Now More Than Ever"
Arkansas Shines a Light on Afterschool
Hundreds of children, parents, afterschool professionals, policy makers and community leaders celebrated the importance of afterschool and summer learning programs Thursday at more than 15 events across the state. Lights on Afterschool, an annual advocacy celebration, focused on the need for afterschool now more than ever as an estimated 65,000 Arkansas children are left unsupervised and at risk throughout the week.  
Across Arkansas, programs gathered in-person and virtually for activities lifting up youth voice, service and community activism. This year's events also focused on the extraordinary support programs have provided to children and families during the 2020 pandemic. From virtual tutoring and online afterschool to meal delivery and Broadband hotspots, afterschool programs proved they are a vital resource now more than ever.  Check out our blog post recap to learn more about how Arkansas programs stepped up to shine a light on afterschool this year.
