Lights On Afterschool

Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. Organized by the Afterschool Alliance, Think Together participates with open house style events at every school site.  Our mission is to secure a sustainable statewide funding solution for afterschool programs, and to ensure that the children in communities all over California have access to high-quality and well-funded afterschool programs.

Shalimar Recognition Dinner

The Shalimar story is at the very heart and origin of Think Together. What started off in this one neighborhood inspired the start of Think Together only a few years later, now a statewide program serving 200,000 students each year. The event recognizes companies and organizations for their above and beyond support of Shalimar.
