Pennsylvania Capitol “Lights Up” for National Lights On Afterschool Celebrations

Nearly 300 Pennsylvania events aim to make afterschool programs available to all

Harrisburg, Pa. (October 24, 2018) — The Pennsylvania Statewide Afterschool/Youth Development Network (PSAYDN) announced today that nearly 300 programs across the state will sponsor Lights On Afterschool events on Thursday, October 25, 2018. Leaders in Pennsylvania call for expanding afterschool opportunities so that every child who needs a program has access to one.

The Pennsylvania Capitol will be lit in yellow as a celebration gesture for the event and in coordination with the iconic Empire State Building, which will light up the New York City skyline in support of Lights On Afterschool.

Governor Tom Wolf has proclaimed October 25 as Lights On Afterschool Day in recognition of the important role of afterschool programs in Pennsylvania. In his proclamation, Governor Wolf encourages the expansion of innovative programs and activities to ensure that the lights stay on and the doors stay open for all children after school. Governor Wolf stressed, “Quality afterschool programs engage students, including programs that provide hands-on, real world science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) projects to help build vital twenty-first century skills.”
