As a child I grew up with limited resources for education afterschool, special programs, sports and mentorships. Growing up I made the decision to not be another statistic and to find resources, go to college play sports and give back to my community. I have worked as an educator for over 20 years from a teacher, school counselor, coach, after school program aide, site coordinator and now a unit director. Through it all I have always shared the same purpose to empower youth and inspire them to find there passion through motivation and inspiration. By myseld I have impacted thousands of youth and together we can reach so many more. Please join me in helping raise funds to pay it forward to our youth and community.

About this Campaign

CalSAC's Gratitude Campaign

Celebrating the out-of-school time professionals who empower our youth


Today, we celebrate the out-of-school time professional - those individuals who are working in programs such as before school, afterschool and summer learning.

We see you.

You – laser focused on getting your paperwork done so you’re ready for high fives when the kids arrive tomorrow.

You – cutting out 400 paper triangles for tomorrow’s STEM activity.

You – reflecting on what a young person told you about themselves and considering how you can lift them up.

Each time you show up for young people, it matters.  

It matters for the future of each young person, for the future of our communities and for the
movement we’re building together.

At CalSAC, we’re honored to walk with out-of-school time professionals on this journey.  CalSAC’s greatest power and impact happens when out-of-school time professionals find their voice, unlock their talents and advocate for their programs and the young people in them. 



We’ve set the goal to raise $40,000 by December 14 to advance CalSAC’s commitment towards building an informed, engaged and empowered out-of-school time workforce, and a more equitable future for California’s children and families.

Will you give gratitude to out-of-school time professionals by making a donation to ensure they get the resources, development and support they need?
