Launch new website and training system to streamline services and expand reach
A few things we're working on in 2012-13
2011-12 Financial Summary
Since 1982, the California School-Age Consortium (CalSAC) has worked to support and advance professionals and organizations in providing quality, affordable and accessible afterschool and school-age care programs.
The California School-Age Consortium
CalSAC builds community by engaging professionals, youth and parents in grassroots advocacy to ensure out-of-school time programs remain a priority in California
150 participants from across the state gathered for a full day of training followed by a day of meeting with every legislative office
91% reported that the event strengthened their knowledge of the budget issues impacting afterschool and school-age child care
95% reported that the event strengthened their ability to engage in legislative visits
100% reported that participating in legislative visits inspired them to engage in legislative advocacy again
120 agencies requested training
6,000 participants received training
800 hours of school-age training provided
“While my job title and position defined me as a leader, before coming into the program I did not really ever attach the word “leader” to myself. Participating in LDI helped me to understand myself as a leader, as well as the different aspects of leadership and how they relate to me. This has been life changing. I feel like there has been a light that has gone off for me in a way that hadn’t before. While I do not propose to be a perfect leader, my understanding of myself as one has changed the way I am at work, and in my community.”
13 emerging leaders of color were selected to become the first cohort of CalSAC LDI Fellows
Fellows complete 60 hours training with their cohort, participate in peer coaching, and implement a leadership plan that advances personal and organizational growth between December 2011 - October 2012
Designed in collaboration with LeaderSpring, Public Profit, Fowler Hoffman, Learning for Action Group, and Preschool California with funding from the Stuart Foundation, The San Francisco Foundation, David & Lucile Packard Foundation and the W. Clement & Jessie V. Stone Foundation
CalSAC develops the next generation of leaders through an intensive fellowship as well as leadership opportunities in our regional chapters and training programs
20,000 hours of professional development completed
665 staff completed over 20 hours of professional development each
25 programs in Alameda County enrolled in the program
$251k allocated to programs for professional development
Launched a bullying prevention training series to meet the increasing need for support in the field
277 out-of-school time professionals were trained
CalSAC connects professionals through regional CalSAC Chapters that provide training, leadership, networking and advocacy opportunities that meet the diverse needs of local communities
Bay Area Chapter
Los Angeles Chapter
San Diego Chapter
Orange County Chapter

6 chapters located regionally, led by 31 volunteer leaders

CONNECTING Professionals
170 active CalSAC Trainers this year in all 11 regions of California
Our approach to training draws upon the skill and experience of professionals in the field to become the training providers in their communities – building local capacity and sustainability

In 2012, CalSAC celebrated 30 years of service to the out-of-school time field – a tremendous accomplishment for any organization and even more so in tough economic times. CalSAC’s contribution to the field has been focused on supporting professionals and agencies to deliver high-quality programs for children and youth.

English Learner Professional Development Project

“My experience in the fellowship has made me a more confident leader and efficient communicator. Over the course of this journey, I have found my voice which has benefited my organization and community. I have begun training my fellow coordinators in leadership development and introducing new ideas that benefit our students. This fellowship has also made me realize that I do have the skills necessary to lead an organization. I have always felt comfortable in management but unsure if I could lead an organization. This fellowship has given me the tools to envision this path in life."

This year, we deepened our approach through local level capacity building and leadership development while strengthening the foundation of our organization to thrive and explore new, innovative programming.
We launched new programs aimed to address the needs of our field to lead in STEM, prevent bullying, and better serve English learners. We also continued to invest in leaders of color to ensure the field is representative of the diversity of the children and youth in California.
Our journey is one that is led by many professionals in communities across California - from our collaborative of trainers statewide providing thousands of staff with training to the volunteer leaders in our regional chapters providing local level training, leadership and networking opportunities.
CalSAC's strength is in the dedication of the vast array of out-of-school time professionals who are committed to the enrichment of children and youth. We are proud to share the successes of our collective impact over the year.
We hope you are inspired to get involved!
