Riverbank, Care Out Loudly, CEO
CalSAC Board Member, Former Board President
Esther Rosario founded Care Out Loudly following her time with THINK Together as the Director of Regional Operations for the Elk Grove and Sacramento Region and the Director of Health and Social Services for Riverbank Unified School District in Stanislaus County, where she oversaw a myriad of support programs from early childhood education to adult education. Esther lead a number of initiatives that brought resources to children and families and was responsible for extended learning program and operations for over 1,100 students daily across five K-12 sites. Esther joined the California School-Age Care Consortium (CalSAC) board in 2012, was a co-chair of the California Afterschool Network Leadership Team and remains active in many community, county and state initiatives that are responsive to the needs of children and families.
Megan Marotta, CalSAC Board Member (2018-2021) shares, “Esther embodies the values of CalSAC and continually paves her own path and changes the trajectory of the world through her social justice warrior mindset. She mentors all those around her without even realizing it.”
“Over the past 10 years, I’ve witnessed the evolution of CalSAC. Building upon the progress of our founders and remaining attentive to the needs of the field, the organization has grown by leaps and bounds. Looking forward, I am thrilled to see CalSAC continue to grow as a leading voice in equity and leadership development as well as build the out-of-school time base by facilitating grassroots advocacy and training across the state. CalSAC’s unique spirit will also undoubtedly continue – one where people are at the center of our work, and children and youth are at the heart of our actions.”
