Lights on Out of School is an annual fundraiser celebrating Next Level Community Development Center’s FREE afterschool and summer program. The annual run/walk will become a hallmark of the organization bringing awareness to the importance of out-of-school programming. Funds raised during the run/walk assist in providing a high level of academic instruction, youth development, and college/career readiness activities to youth falling 150% below the national poverty level and at risk of academic failure. The organization’s mission is to Educate, Enlighten, and Empower youth and families to make healthy lifestyle choices.
