I envision a world where every young person has the resources and support they need to move from surviving to thriving. Educators are everywhere and their work never stops. I’m fundraising to support CalSAC’s work to unite, empower and transform the experience that leaders in OST have.

Teachers and youth workers have the enormous potential to step in where our system fails and falters. When educational leadership is attuned to the needs of young people and understands the context that they live in, learning environments are designed to be both emotionally safe and academically rigorous. CalSAC is working statewide to unleash this potential.

Together, we can ensure all youth, regardless of their zip-code, have access to high quality out-of-school time programming.

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?

About the Organization

CalSAC (California School-Age Consortium)

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.
