SAVE THE DATE! Now is the time to start thinking about your Lights On Afterschool celebration! LOAS 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 – and more and more NE communities are hosting LOAS events each year. The events send a powerful message that Nebraska youth need quality afterschool programs. Visit the LOAS webpage at the Afterschool Alliance to start thinking about your program’s event.
