A Message from Prime Time Leadership Our Vision It is always exciting to be part of an organization that makes a positive impact in its field. As leadership of Prime Time Palm Beach County, we are proud to represent an organization that actualizes its vision of being a thought leader in the out-of-school time field. While Prime Time has been known throughout South Florida for its exemplary service to the afterschool field since its inception nearly 15 years ago, it has also developed a stellar reputation nationally over the past few years. Prime Time is now sought after by other communities nationwide to learn about its service model. To be a thought leader in the out-of-school time field Prime Time served more than 25,000 school-age youth in 2013-2014. Word about Prime Time has spread in part due to its participation in Every Hour Counts, a national coalition of citywide organizations that increase access to quality learning opportunities, particularly for underserved children. Prime Time is among nine communities that comprise this distinguished group of leading system-builders. Prime Time and the other members of Every Hour Counts are producing solid evidence that shows that high quality out-of-school time programs make a difference in the lives of children. Through our national and local partners and outstanding practice, Prime Time continues to move the field forward. Our efforts are made possible by Children’s Services Council of Palm Beach County for its continued support of Prime Time and the Prime Time staff for its dedication to ensuring that high quality out-of-school time programming is available for the children of Palm Beach County. Sincerely, Upendo Shabazz-Phillips Chair, Board of Directors Suzette L. Harvey Executive Director OUR MISSION To foster high quality in out-of-school time programs, which provide opportunities for children and youth to succeed

New offerings The Progressive Director Institute: This series targets leaders in the field who seek to strengthen their leadership capacities and skills and professional development planning practices. Participants learn how to apply the Core Competencies in Afterschool in establishing professional development goals and learn principles of the Myers-Briggs Type Instrument (MBTI) and its application to leadership, teamwork and communication. Excelling in Out-of-School Time: A Guide to Goal-Setting Using the Core Competencies: A new online, interactive module was developed to offer practitioners access to useful information about the core competencies and professional development planning any time.

Quality Improvement: Providing supports and services to foster high quality out-of-school time programs. Using the Palm Beach County Quality Standards for Afterschool as the foundation for their work, Prime Time’s quality advisors guide participating programs through a self-assessment process and development of an improvement plan. The 2013-2014 quality improvement cycle launched with 121 programs striving to deliver high quality programing for the children and youth whom they serve. Of these programs, 21 were functioning at maintenance status, demonstrating their ability to consistently perform at a higher level of quality; 81 at the intermediate level and 19 at entry. Quality Improvement System Levels 19 81 21 An annual review of QIS scores revealed that the longer a program participates in the system the more quality improves. Overall program quality was highest among those that had been in the system the longest, while new programs just entering the system scored lower on the Palm Beach County Program Quality Assessment (PBC-PQA) tool. Research and Evaluation: Discovering how out-of-school time programs improve the social, emotional and academic well-being of youth in Palm Beach County Prime Time has begun delving deeper into youth outcomes related to high quality out-of-school time programming. Specifically, Prime Time completed its first in-depth study in partnership with the American Institutes for Research, which showed that higher quality programs reduced the likelihood that youth would be retained compared to lower quality programs. Further, youth who attended higher quality programs in 2011– 2012 had fewer absences and behavioral incidences than children in lower quality programs, although these trends were not statistically significant. Needless to say, we are thrilled with the results and have launched further research studies to explore the positive impact of high quality out-of-school time programs.
