Lights On in Lander started in the fall of 2001. Since that time, the program has worked to promote the benefits of afterschool programs by working with the schools to expand and enhance the school day. These types of activities are designed to support the goals and objectives of the schools through academic excellence.
Lights On in Lander also strongly supports the need for the prevention of at-risk behaviors and integrates those messages in every activity we offer. By exposing students to quality programs and providing them opportunities to develop critical thinking skills, we hope to reduce the instances of risk-related behaviors.
Each year, Lights On in Lander provides academic assistance and enrichment activities to approximately 350 students. Programs are offered during the fall and spring semesters as well as the summer.
