Lights On Afterschool is a nationwide event to promote the importance of after school programs for children, families and communities. ASAP joined over 1 million parents, youth, community stakeholders, state and national leaders to keep the lights on after school.
The Lights On Afterschool event is used to draw attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering opportunities to learn new things. Statistics shows that well over 1 in 4 youth are alone and unsupervised after school and the majority of juvenile crime occurs between the non-school hours of 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Afterschool programs keep youth safe, help working families and inspire learning in areas of science, community service and new skills training. They provide opportunities to help youth develop into successful adults.
The event sends a powerful message that many more kids need quality afterschool programs.
As a prevention tool, ASAP introduced Robotics to its youth referred to the DJJ program. The youth are given the ability to design, build and program robots of all shapes and sizes to perform exciting tasks, challenges and missions. The intent of the Robotics program is to inspire the youth and develop an interest in engineering and technology, while learning the principles of engineering hands-on. A partnership with Gulf Coast State College obtained willing volunteers with programming knowledge and patience to make this project a huge success!
With assistance from our partners at Home Depot and our local 4H-UF/IFAS Extension Offfice, youth referred to the DJJ program construct a garden bed with lumber, soil and wire. The youth determine which vegetables to grow and at what time of the year to plant based on extensive research and utilization of the internet in ASAP’s computer lab. The youth are responsible for watering and nurturing the plants to ensure continued life. Youth are also given healthy recipes that are taken home to prepare a healthy meal together with their family.
