Join the Lights On Afterschool Thunderclap!

Thursday, October 26 2017 is Lights On Afterschool, the national day of celebration of quality Afterschool programs and how they keep kids safe, help working families and inspire kids to learn!

In Ohio, Afterschool programs are not a luxury… they are critical to a youth’s success, both in school and in life! But many people don’t know what value Afterschool brings to a community. It’s high time we yelled this message from the mountaintop. A Thunderclap is a good way to do it!


Social media is an easy way to say something, but it’s a difficult way to be heard. Thunderclap is the first-ever crowdspeaking platform that helps people be heard by saying something together. It allows a single message to be mass-shared, flash mob-style, so it rises above the noise of your social networks. By boosting the signal at the same time, Thunderclap helps a single person create action and change like never before.


Register for the Thunderclap here with your Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr account. On Thursday, October 26th at 4:00 PM you will see the OAN post on your social media accounts. (Just that one time, and only the message on the Thunderclap.) It’s a super easy way to support Afterschool in Ohio and let your friend, family and co-workers know that #afterschoolworks !
