Make plans to join Citizen Schools and the Afterschool Alliance to celebrate the importance of afterschool programs on Thursday, October 17th, for the 2nd Annual Citizen Schools Lights On Afterschool event!
In communities today, 15.1 million children take care of themselves after the school day ends. Afterschool programs keep kids safe, help working families and inspire learning.
Citizen Schools partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for children in low-income communities across the country. By drawing thousands more citizens into schools each year, we're promoting student achievement, transforming schools, and re-imagining education in America.
Join us, along with 7,500+ afterschool programs nationwide, in celebrating our afterschool programs. Come and experience first-hand what the expanded learning day looks like for Citizen Schools students and meet our dedicated staff. Visitors will hear testimonials from school staff, families, volunteer Citizen Teachers, and students as well as witness program & apprenticeships in action! Light refreshments will be provided.
Remember to bring your smartphone to the event and share your experience on Twitter. Follow us at @CitizenSchoolNC and use the hashtag #CSLightsOn.
