On Thursday, October 28, many Central Connecticut Coast YMCAs will hold events as part of Lights On Afterschool, a nationwide rally for afterschool programs that is expected to include thousands of events this year. People across the country join these events to draw attention to the many ways afterschool programs have stepped up to support students, families and communities in the pandemic.
