The hours between 3 p.m. - 6 p.m. are when millions of children go home alone or are without adult supervision. These are the hours when many children and youth engage in or are subject to violence, drug and alcohol use, and other at-risk behaviors. We view these hours as "Prime Time" for enrichment activities, extended learning opportunities, exposure to social, cultural, and arts experiences, and time for positive social development.

Generate Some STEAM in Afterschool

Prime Time Palm Beach County has found a way to get children excited about STEM/STEAM.  In partnership with other great local organizations in the community, Prime Time works with out-of-school time programs to make STEM/STEAM exciting!

Check out this great video illustrating Prime Time’s “Generate Some STEAM in Afterschool” project.

Lights On Afterschool

Families and children are invited to join Prime Time Palm Beach County for the Tenth Annual Lights On Afterschool Palm Beach County on Thursday, October 23, 2014, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Clematis by Night in downtown West Palm Beach.

Prime Time is planning fun and engaging hands-on activities, including those in the popular area of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) for children and their families to enjoy. Face-painting and visiting with adoptable rescue kittens and puppies will add to the festivities. Children may enjoy coloring and creating their own unique light bulb artwork, and becoming cast members in a video in recognition of Lights On Afterschool Day 2014. Families will have access to valuable information from a variety of community organizations throughout the evening. 

Prime Time currently has 3 buses for site pick-up on a first-come, first-serve basis. Prime Time strongly encourages programs with their own transportation to take advantage of this special family engagement opportunity.
