PSAYDN is pleased to offer a unique, online training session entitled “Planning a Lights On! Event: How to Engage your Policymakers and the Media”. This online training will provide participants with tips and tools to develop events that attract media attention, policymaker support, as well as parent, school and business stakeholder engagement, and ultimately highlight the importance of afterschool programs in the community.
“Planning a Lights On! Event: How to Engage your Policymakers and the Media” is scheduled for Wednesday, August 20, 2014 from 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Lights On! Afterschool is celebrated annually to call attention to the importance of afterschool programs for America’s children, families and communities across the country. This session will be presented by Sarah Simpson from the Afterschool Alliance.
