22nd Annual Lights on Afterschool

Prime Time is celebrating Lights On Afterschool! Afterschool programs have risen to the occasion and stepped in to serve children and families, but now they need our support. The Afterschool in the Time of COVID-19 survey finds that afterschool programs are severely affected by the hardships created by the pandemic.


Now more than ever, staffing and funding is a top priority for afterschool programs in Palm Beach County and beyond. Please join us in sharing job opportunities in afterschool with your social media followers, friends, families and colleagues:


This year, as part of the nationwide Lights On Afterschool celebration, Prime Time has spotlighted local afterschool professionals who have supported children and families as they navigated the COVID-19 pandemic. Watch the full video below.



Launched in October 2000, 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 Afterschool Alliance organizes Lights On Afterschool to draw attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things—such as science, community service, robotics, Tae Kwon Do and poetry—and discover new skills. The events send a powerful message that millions more kids need quality afterschool programs.
