The CalSAC Trainer Network builds the training and facilitation skills of leaders in the field, who in turn provide training to professionals working in a variety of out-of-school time programs across the state. Through the network, we deepen and grow the skills of professionals to best serve the interests of young people across our state.

Professionals who join the Trainer Network hone and deepen their:

  • Training and Facilitation Skills

  • Ability to Deliver Effective Technical Assistance

  • Leadership Capacity

  • Knowledge and Connection to Statewide Field


CalSAC Apprentice Trainers complete an 8-month certification process where they participate in a three-day intensive Training of Trainers Institute, implement CalSAC's on-site training curriculum to programs in their community, reflect on their own facilitation and training skills, and receive ongoing mentoring from a Senior Certified Trainer.
