After 3pm: danger zone or opportunity knocking?
My “Big Idea” is the importance of quality, Out-Of-School time programming in San Antonio. Based upon recent research commissioned by Excel Beyond the Bell San Antonio, it is estimated that over 100,000 school age children in low income neighborhoods do not attend or have access to after school programs, yet these programs could literally change their lives.
In my TEDxSanAntonio talk, I will: (1) share impactful national and local San Antonio research, (2) reveal outcomes for the San Antonio OST sector, and (3) discuss the steps being taken by the Out-of-School Time sector to ensure that San Antonio is the top U.S. city for youth to grow, learn and thrive. At the conclusion of my talk, attendees will have a clear understanding of the need and the potential outcomes for San Antonio.

Under Angie’s direction and ownership, Flagstone managed 55 hotels in 29 states with annual revenues of $158 million and over 3,000 employees.

Under her leadership, the number of youth served has more than tripled. Based on average daily attendance of approximately 4,000 youth each day in the school year, BGCSA is the fourth largest Boys & Girls Club in the nation. Angie and her team recently completed an $11 million capital campaign in less than one year to build two new Boys & Girls Clubs in underserved San Antonio neighborhoods.
