“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.”
