Description

On Thursday, October 26, the Harrisonburg Out-of-School Learning (OSL) Coalition, comprised of more than 10 youth serving programs and organizations, will join the 18th annual Lights On Afterschool, a nationwide series of rallies for afterschool organized by the Afterschool Alliance.

The Lights On Afterschool rally will feature a variety of youth demonstrations, performances & speakers as well as remarks from community leaders about the importance of out-of-school learning. Hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be provided.

Last year, 1 million people participated in more than 8,000 Lights On Afterschool rallies; the Afterschool Alliance expects the same level of participation this year. The events give youth a chance to showcase the skills they learn and talents they develop at their afterschool programs, and to send the message that millions more children and youth need quality afterschool programs.

The Harrisonburg OSL Coalition is comprised of: Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys & Girls Clubs, Girl Scouts, Harrisonburg City Schools, JMU’s Office on Children and Youth, JMU’s Outreach & Engagement, JMU's Valley Scholars, Massanutten Regional Library, On the Road Collaborative, Second Home, Scholars Latino Initiative and The First Tee.

Register today....and celebrate Lights On Afterschool in Harrisonburg! The event is free and open to the public.
