On Friday October 14th-16th, Higher Ground Program Coordinators attended the California School-Age Consortium Statewide Conference in Sacramento, California. As professionals in our field, it is important that we constantly attend opportunities for professional development to continue to bring quality programming to our students!
For over 25 years, the California School-Age Consortium has offered out-of-school time professionals a unique opportunity to learn, grow, and be supported at our annual CalSAC Spotlight on Afterschool Conference.
We are very proud to annouce that this year, the spotlight was on one of our own! Our Lead Program Coordinator, Raymond Marinelli (aka: "Coach Ray") was one of the 2010 recepients of "The Award of Excellence" at Cal Sac!!
Please Celebrate this accomplishment with us and enjoy the pictures in this gallery! More images to come!
It has been a long road for us as an organization to get to where we are at this moment. We have all worked really hard and in these images, what you see is the hearts and soul of five individuals that have formed a family. A family, dedicated to the success of our youth that leads under the motto "One Team, One Dream." We are; Amber Blackwell (Programatic Operations Director), Raymond Martinelli (Lead Coordinator-Sobrante Park), Fatima "Yoly" Jimenez (Program Coordinator- Allendale) Khariyyah Shabazz (Program Coordinator-New Highland), and Krystal Jenkins (Program Coordinator-Brookfield).
