For over 30 years, CalSAC has worked to support and advance professionals and organizations in
providing high quality and accessible out-of-school time programs. We envision a California where all
children and youth are fully supported to be healthy, thriving members of their communities and where
out-of-school time programs are a public priority. We approach our work with a commitment to
grassroots, local level engagement, diversifying leadership through equitable and inclusive practices and
by valuing all voices from emerging to experienced.

Developing high quality
equity driven leaders
“CalSAC's Leadership
Development Institute gave me
a new language to articulate my
experience as a leader and a
person of color in the
aerschool field.”
“I knew from the moment I
participated in a few CalSAC
trainings that I wanted to
become a trainer because I’d
be part of something bigger.
I’d be growing professionally,
have an outside support
system, and I’d be having fun.”
Building an influential
collective voice
“I learned that youth really
have power in the community
and we can change policy if we
come together.”
 “I learned how to eectively
utilize my voice and advocate
for my passions.”
About CalSAC
“CalSAC gives dignity to the out-of-school time worker.
This is critical; we must recognize, develop, and celebrate the
professionals in our field at every level."

In 2015, CalSAC set the goal to raise $50,000 in individual
donations by the end of the year. This was an ambitious goal;
in our 30+ years of operation, CalSAC has never held an individual
giving campaign.
CalSAC’s Field of Power Campaign engages the out-of-school time
field in building an influential, collective voice as well as initiates
a culture of giving in the field. Our hope is that more OST
professionals and organizations will give and ask others to give
in support of OST education and enrichment.
Thanks to a matching gi from the S.H. Cowell Foundation and the
generosity of hundreds of donors, the 2015 Field of Power
Campaign was a resounding success, setting a foundation for
the future of giving for CalSAC and the OST field.
