Expanded Learning (i.e. after-school and summer) programs were an integral part of my eco-system as a youth. It is where I developed my academic, social, emotional, and physical needs and interests as a scholar. AND it must be acknowledged that these learning opportunities were at the hands of teachers who put in extra time beyond the dismissal bell - along with - coaches, group leaders, and volunteers who organized hands-on, engaging, results-driven, opportunities. They involved me in my community and completed my learning in the regular school day/year.

Every year CalSAC trains and empowers thousands of educators, after-school professionals, and volunteers to strengthen their skills, deepen their impact, and advocate for policies that benefit children and families.

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?

Kiwan has earned stickers for their fundraising campaign!
