Keep the lights on and doors open for the 19.4 million children who still need after school programs
arc is joining more than 8,000 communities and 1 million Americans in celebrating afterschool programs for this year’s Lights On Afterschool! This nationwide event, organized by the Afterschool Alliance, calls attention to the importance of afterschool programs and the resources required to keep the lights on and the doors open.
The arc participants for this year’s celebration include the over 70 schools we serve. Join us for the movie nights, fall festivals, science fairs, arts showcases, and many more events being planned at our programs across Southern California, from Los Angeles to Orange County and San Diego.
Highlights from arc programs include:

- Fall Carnival with team building activities and essentials bag assembly for those suffering from homelessness at Animo Venice in Venice, CA
- Arts Showcase with a choreographed dance performance at View Park Prep Elementary and Middle School in Los Angeles, CA
Too many American children—19.4 million—are missing out on afterschool opportunities. Participate in Lights On Afterschool and help call attention to this important issue.
