Monday marked a Federal holiday celebrating the birth-date of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We asked the kids and teens here at Little Lights how Martin Luther King, Jr., a leader during the Civil Rights movement impacted their lives. See what the kids had to say!
In our art programs our kids also focused on Martin Luther King, Jr. Below you will see a glimpse of their artwork.
See more Martin Luther King, Jr. artwork on our Flickr page.

Programs have begun this week!
It’s such an exciting time for our staff as we get in gear for another semester at Little Lights. Middle school students in Homework Club are able to choose among the various enrichment classes we offer, one of them being a photography class.
Here’s a video introducing photography class to our students:
Their other options include classes on art, online research, Microsoft Publisher, and cooking; and all Homework Club students participate in World Culture Day each week.
If you’re interested in helping out with any of our classes, whether it be as a guest photographer or to share your culture, contact to see how you can get involved!
We’re looking forward to another great semester at Little Lights. It’s not too late for you and your friends to volunteer! Refer to our Program-Specific Training Schedule under ("read more") and our “Get Involved” page for other volunteer requirements and opportunities. We are starting to book groups for our Saturday UrbanDiP opportunities and Spring Break groups as well.
This past Saturday, a few of the Little Lights staff and volunteers took five 2nd graders to an indoor splash park in Maryland. The kids got to go down water slides, swim around, and try their skills at walking across some lily pads! Fun was had by all!
