                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

Whereas high quality after school programs provide safe, challenging, engaging, 
        and fun learning experiences to help children and youth develop their 
        social, emotional, physical, cultural, and academic skills;
Whereas high quality after school programs support working families by ensuring 
        that the children in such families are safe and productive after the 
        regular school day ends;
Whereas high quality after school programs build stronger communities by 
        involving the Nation's students, parents, business leaders, and adult 
        volunteers in the lives of the Nation's youth, thereby promoting 
        positive relationships among children, youth, families, and adults;
Whereas high quality after school programs engage families, schools, and diverse 
        community partners in advancing the well-being of the Nation's children;
Whereas ``Lights On Afterschool!'', a national celebration of after school 
        programs held on October 12, 2006, promotes the critical importance of 
        high quality after school programs in the lives of children, their 
        families, and their communities;
Whereas more than 28,000,000 children in the United States have parents who work 
        outside the home and 14,300,000 children in the United States have no 
        place to go after school; and
Whereas many after school programs across the United States are struggling to 
        keep their doors open and their lights on: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That Congress supports the goals and ideals of ``Lights On 
Afterschool!'' a national celebration of after school programs.

            Passed the Senate September 21, 2006.

            Attest:

                                                             Secretary.
