Danville, VA-- Parents in Danville had a chance to learn about some after school programs for their kids Thursday.
The Lights on After school event was held at the Danville Science Center. Science Center officials say what young people do after school is important to their development.
There were more than 15 after school organizations there to share information about different after school programs.
One organizer with Upward Bound says the event was a success.
"We had several parents as well as students interested in going to college or wanted information about going to college so we did share information to the parents that we're here in the community for them," DCC Upward Bound Program Director Robin Dabney.
The event was sponsored by the Danville Regional Foundation.
