Afterschool Programs Celebrate Lights On After School Day

Bush Advantage Afterschool Program recently celebrated the 12th Annual Lights On Day sponsored by the Afterschool Alliance. One million Americans and more than 7,500 communities nationwide celebrated afterschool programming that helps keep kids safe, inspires them to learn and helps working families. All JPS Afterschool Programs participated in the day.

Jamestown Public Schools, in partnership with Chautauqua Striders, YWCA of Jamestown, Boys & Girls Club, The Y, and other community organizations, provides academic support, a wide array of youth development activities that complement the regular school day, and family involvement opportunities at all 6 district elementary schools. Full after school programs are also offered at both Jefferson and Washington Middle Schools; limited activities are available at Persell Middle School. Niche-type, high interest activities for teens are offered at JHS, Infinity and Arts Council for Chautauqua County. Additionally, Eastside Y, the Y Teen Center and Boys & Girls Club provide popular summer and school year programming for youth ages 12 to 18. Supported by a variety of funding streams, including 21st Century, Advantage and Extended School Day grants, and very affordable family fees for our elementary and middle school programs, Jamestown After School is truly the place to be after three!
