Why are out-of-school time (such as before school, afterschool, and summertime learning) programs important? Here are some quick facts: - Afterschool programs can boost academic performance - Reduce risky behaviors, such as keeping youth off the streets and away from gangs and violence - Promote health, through physical activities and nutritional meals - Provide a safe, structured environment for the children of working parents. The problem? Those who work in out-of-school time programs often do not have the resources needed to provide youth and children with the support they deserve. That's where my organization comes in! We provide professional development to these individuals through different curriculum, training, and leadership opportunities. So by supporting this campaign, you'll be supporting all the youth and children in California who benefit from out-of-school time programs. Learn more about what we do at www.calsac.org!

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?

Every year, CalSAC trains and empowers thousands of adults who work in California’s out-of-school time programs to strengthen their skills, deepen their impact, and advocate for policies that benefit children and families.

In turn, these individuals shape the lives of tens of thousands of young people, helping them unlock their full potential. Through collaboration and innovation, our network creates ripple effects of opportunity, equity and transformation throughout California, both for professionals and the young people they serve.
