Lights On Afterschool for Baldwin County


Baldwin County Family Connection will host an event celebrating the 13th annual Lights on Afterschool observance later this month. 

Every October since 2000, children, parents, grandparents, educators, community leaders, policymakers, celebrities and others nationwide have come together to show their support for afterschool programs. As the only nationwide rally for afterschool programs, individuals will gather at schools, community centers, parks, malls, state capitols and elsewhere to rally for the programs that help working families, keep kids safe, and inspire them to learn on Oct. 18. 

Last year, there were nearly 200 Lights On Afterschool events hosted throughout Georgia.

This year’s Lights On Afterschool event is held in conjunction with the Baldwin County school system’s annual Stay In School Rally, scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 16 at Braves Field. Sponsors for the Lights On Afterschool event include Baldwin County Family Connection, YES Program and Milledgeville Housing Authority.

Baldwin County Family Connection is an agency with a mission to form collaborations throughout the community to strengthen families so that all children are healthy, ready to start school, and make each family stable and self-sufficient.
