March Family Meeting Topic: Workshop, Coming Events, Announcements

We asked our community what they'd like to see at future PTSA meetings—Thank you for your participation and kind words! We also encouraged people to step up for next year's PTSA board, elections of which will take place at the April 30 Family Meeting.

February Family Meeting Topic: Summer Opportunities

It's already time to start thinking about, and applying, to summer job opportunities. We hosted a couple of presenters at our February Meeting:

  • Tyree Johnson of MYEEP (Mayor's Youth Employment and Education Program). MYEEP provides San Francisco youth with paid work opportunities, academic support, and tools they’ll need to succeed in the workplace.  MYEEP also gives youth a chance to build relationships with other members of their neighborhood communities. Get in touch if interested in paying student jobs in many different disciplines. Tyree Johnson @ Balboa HS: or train your camera-phone on this QR code:
  • SF YouthWorks provides paid job readiness workshops, training, and internships at different SF City Departments such as the Public Utilities Commission, the Public Library, and the SF International Airport. Contact: Gina Ziyad,
  • A few other options that caught our eye:
FUF green teen program
There are many summer opportunities in San Francisco, like this vocational skills program run by Friends of the Urban Forest for students interested in environmental jobs
