Lights On Afterschool 2015 Celebration

Thank you to all the school staff, B&A staff, families, community organizations, and more at the 38 Lights On Afterschool celebrations that were held around the city. Learn more about Lights On Afterschool with the map below. 

Lights On Afterschool is a nationwide celebration which expresses the importance of afterschool programming. These programs build stronger communities by involving our students, parents, business leaders and volunteers in the lives of our young people.

LINC Caring Communities programs provide safe, challenging, engaging and fun learning experiences to help children and youth develop their social, cultural, physical, and academic skills.

Join us for the celebration on Thursday, October 22 at a LINC Caring Communities site near you.
