Prime Time Family Reading (New Orleans, LA 70113-1024)
Sarah DeBacher (Project Director: May 2020 to present)
PRIME TIME:Bringing Humanities-Based Education Home

Funding of four positions to enhance a family reading and discussion program, develop a new digital delivery model, and produce and broadcast a humanities-based podcast.

Since 1991, PRIME TIME, Inc., has provided humanities-based literacy programming to thousands of educationally and economically vulnerable families in Louisiana. Taking the lessons learned from nearly 30 years of implementing in-person programs, PRIME TIME proposes to meet its target audience where they are already and safely at: online and at home. Through developing a new book series exploring humanities themes relevant to times of crisis, distributing the new series along with humanities-based activities in kits statewide, and producing a podcast focused on discovering the humanities in children's books, the proposed project will bring the humanities directly into homes of 800 Louisiana families. As a result, families will gain access to high-quality children's literature and engaging humanities-based programming online and on the radio, and parents will come away feeling more comfortable in their role as their child's primary educator.
