Today, we celebrate the out-of-school time professional -
those individuals who are working in programs such as before school,
afterschool and summer learning.
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.
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.
CalSAC believes that every young person should have access to high-quality, affordable out-of-school time options like before school, afterschool, and summer enrichment programs. 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.
