Children and Youth

Prime Time's work is embedded in a wide body of research demonstrating that quality out-of-school time (OST) programs lead to substantial academic, social, and emotional benefits for youth.

The benefits for children and youth in high quality OST program include:

 -  Higher grades

-  Improved standardized test scores

-  On-time grade promotion

-  Reduced dropout rates

-  Increased school day attendance in programs throughout the country

Prime Time strives to provide children and youth with a wide range of hands-on learning experiences. In partnership with local content expert organizations, Prime Time makes available expanded learning opportunities (ELOs) to eligible afterschool and summer programs. In 2019-2020, Prime Time offered more than 22,000 children and youth access to ELOs.
