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.

Prime Time's Partners
Why Reading Matters
The Children’s Services Councilof Palm Beach County (CSC) and its community partners are coming together to create a countywide campaign that encourages reading and raises awareness of why it matters to all of us. The goal is to prompt discussion and bring groups together to focus on reading in our community. Through the use of fairy tales, the“My Happily Ever After Begins with Reading” campaign builds awareness around the importance of reading and how it is the building block to a successful life.
With generous support from CSC, Prime Timeand its partnersprovide expanded learning opportunities for children in quality afterschool programs. Afterschool provides an opportunity to engage children and build upon their interests, while supporting what they are learning in school. Prime Time’s expanded learning opportunities offerenrichmentsin a number of subject areas, including literacy, and Prime Time is proud to support the new campaign.
