October 20th is Lights On Afterschool
We're helping our friends at Afterschool Alliance spread the word about Lights On Afterschool, a national celebration (with over 1 million participants) that helps to increase awareness about the importance of afterschool programs - a topic that is very near and dear to our hearts.

Our goal at Peachjar is to ensure that all children have equal access to high quality afterschool programs that teach them important core values, improve their academic performance, and keep them safe during afterschool hours.

As program providers, there are many ways you can help:

  • Plan an event - Host your own Lights On Afterschool event to increase awareness about your programs, gain valuable community support, and celebrate your students' achievements.
  • Attend an event - Over 8,000 events across the country are taking place to support Lights On Afterschool. Find a local event in your community to join the fight.
  • Sign the petition - Funding for afterschool programs is critical in providing children with the opportunities they need to succeed. Sign the Lights On Afterschool petition to call for increased investments in afterschool programs.
  • Vote for afterschool - Ensure you're making informed votes this election by learning about the policies that affect afterschool programs and voting for officials that will make the right impact in your community.
  • Spread the word - Tell your community about this important initiative by posting about it on social media and informing families about your program. Click here to send a digital flyer through Peachjar.

As afterschool supporters, we have the power to make a difference in children's lives and speak up for those who don't have a voice. Together, we can ensure that children have the opportunities they need to achieve their full potential in life. Join us!
