Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement and generates media coverage across the country each year.
The Springfield Boys & Girls Club utilizes this event to draw attention to the many ways our afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things - such as science, community service, robotics, swimming, lacrosse and much more to discover new skills. Our event send a powerful message to the City of Springfield that more kids need quality afterschool programs.
In addition to this event, the Club will be hosting its Annual Halloween Party!
