Afterschool Advocacy

Prime Time serves as an advocate for quality afterschool and facilitates practitioners' and program leaders' participation in local, state, and national initiatives that support quality afterschool programs for all children. As such, Prime Time hosts an annual Lights On Afterschool celebration to increase community awareness of and focus public attention on the importance of afterschool.

Prime Time's advocacy efforts are guided by its Advocacy Committee which is made up of a diverse group of representatives from afterschool programs, the School District and enhancement providers.
