Sites are selected for participation based on geographic distribution, need for the program in the community, availability of qualified discussion leaders and storytellers in the area, and ability of the host organization to provide a minimum cost share match equal to Florida Humanities CouncilĀ funds.

All PrimeTime team members (Program Coordinator, Discussion Leader, and Storyteller) must attend a weekend training session in New Orleans prior to participation in the PrimeTime program.
