The Empire State Building will shine for Lights On Afterschool!

Lights On Afterschool wouldn’t be such a powerful rally for afterschool if we didn’t have amazing partners to help us celebrate! From the programs that host events and the individuals that attend them and to the organizations that participate by elevating the message on social media, bringing everyone together and sharing our support of afterschool is the key to a brilliant celebration.

This year, one of our brightest partners is back: for the 11th year in a row, the iconic Empire State Building will be lighting up the New York City skyline in support of Lights On Afterschool!

On October 26, the lights on 5th Avenue will stay on, making a shining representation of both the students who are benefiting from afterschool enrichment every day and the students who are waiting to get into quality programs. With the sky lit up in blue and yellow, it will be an eye-catching reminder of how much we need our afterschool programs!

As we move into August, it’s the perfect time to register your Lights On Afterschool event. Once registered, you’ll receive an event starter kit with everything you need to get your event going, including 10 free copies of this year’s poster. (Plus, you’ll be eligible for prizes and giveaways each week leading up to October 26!)

We are honored to have a national landmark like the Empire State Building celebrating afterschool with us, and we’re excited to celebrate the afterschool partners, programs, families, and students across the country during the Lights On Afterschool season. Join us, the Empire State Building, and thousands of out-of-school time programs in keeping the Lights On Afterschool. Register your program so you don’t miss a single update!
