Lights on Afterschool events in DC, October 17 and 18

Quality afterschool programming can help reduce youth developmental risk factors and academic barriers.   Learn more about what is offered in DC at these two events:
  • DCAYA's Lights on Afterschool―for youth, parents, elected and appointed officials, residents, media―will feature live performances, music, food, and informational booths.   The annual event will take place October 17 from 5:30 - 8:30 pm at All Souls Church Unitarian (1500 Harvard St NW).   More information about the event is on the DCAYA website or by contacting Tommia via email.
  • The DC Children and Youth investment Trust Corporation will hold their annual Lights on Afterschool celebration October 18 at 4:00 pm.   The Trust event takes place in front of the John A. Wilson Building (1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW) and will feature dozens of youth sharing how their afterschool program has made a difference for them.   The young people will then form a "human light bulb" on the steps of the building.   RSVP online.
