Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities (LEH) - PRIME TIME
Grants of $1,000 and program support to Louisiana early childhood and childcare centers, libraries, Head Start programs, museums, schools, churches, and additional community organizations for literacy programs for children ages 3-5. Programs will introduce families with young children to the humanities and literature through age-appropriate storytelling, discussion, and literary exploration via center-based play.
Trained facilitators read award-winning children’s books and guide groups to personally connect with literature through open-ended questioning and center exploration activities. The program models strategies that encourage family bonding, reading, and critical thinking through the discussion and exploration of literature. The format is an interactive story sharing and group discussion that takes place in one 90-minute session per week for six weeks.
Louisiana-based sites will receive materials, training, and a stipend to implement the program at their site. Accepted programs receive a set of six books for each family in the program. Program Coordinators and Preschool Facilitators receive training and program manuals on the PRIME TIME methodology. Sites receive a kit with the necessary materials to publicize their program. Program site receives a stipend to provide meals, centers, and door prizes to participants. All three team members are also compensated with a stipend at the close of the program.
Each program has the option to accept a $1,000 program support stipend to implement the program. It is possible to implement the program without accepting the stipend. Please check to ensure the applicant agency is able to receive the stipend before completing the application. If the agency can accept the stipend indicate to which agency or party the payment should be made out to.
