Lights On Afterschool Ohio!

Lights On Afterschool is your opportunity to help #lightupOhio with the message that Afterschool programs matter! Across the US, over a million people will participate in events celebrating Afterschool in their communities. From carnivals to art showcases to town hall meetings, Afterschool programs will tell their success stories with help from youth, parents, community leaders, volunteers and other stakeholders. 

So what's Ohio's story? Here in Ohio the need for Afterschool programs is high...

  • 846,248 students in Ohio would participate in an Afterschool program if one were available to them
  • 431,489 students are on their own during the hours after school in Ohio
Many people know that Afterschool programs help keep kids safe, supervised and in structured programs during the hours of 3:00 PM  to 6:00 PM, which is critical for Ohio's working families. But you may not know that Afterschool programs help communities in many less obvious ways. Studies show that Afterschool programs also...

  • support academic outcomes in schools
  • prevent youth crime and violence
  • decrease school absences and truancy
  • alleviate food insecurity
  • help prepare youth for college
  • introduce youth to STEM career fields
Find a Lights On Afterschool event and join in on the celebration. And join the OAN Thunderclap to show that you value and support Afterschool programs in Ohio!
