On Thursday for International Women’s Day, over 100 young women taught each other screen-printing, jewlery-making, healthy cooking, embroidery, and photography.
Thanks to Mission Girls and Urban Services YMCA for partnering with us, and to BLING for its grant to the event’s organizers, the teens in our Latino Student Union!
The Latinx Student Union at @John O'Connell High School organized an International Women’s Day event yesterday.
There, they premiered a new music video made by @Mission Girls.
We’re proud of our youth organizers for showcasing local artists and honoring women!...
Richard, who attends our Vision Academy, aced his spelling test! 💯
We aim to ensure students in our afterschool program finish their homework, play chess, learn to code and get outdoors each day!
“Like” this post to congratulate Richard and all of our striving students! 📓
Our support groups — which aim to engage newcomer and first generation Latino students in a peer network and learning community—went on a special field-trip to the De Young Museum.
These students from Everett Middle School saw art work and ceremonial objects created by their ancestors from hundreds to thousands of years ago.
Last Friday afternoon, the "Mission Mapaches" Middle School Bike Club rode their bikes to Ocean Beach. They later got muddy on the trails of Golden Gate park!
Mission Mapaches (Mission Racoons) meet weekly afterschool. Students explore their environment through nature hikes, bicycling, and more. As important, they consistently learn about how they can conserve, protect and enjoy nature!
Thanks to CLIF Bar Family Foundation for their grant support-- and for believing that urban children deserve opportunities to enjoy and protect the outdoors!
We recently hired Julieta Dominguez, a USC-trained Marriage and Family Therapist, as our Senior Director of Family Services. Join us in welcoming her!
Julieta previously worked at the San Francisco Child Abuse Prevention Center.
What can Immigrant families coming to Good Samaritan expect from Julieta and the team she oversees?...
Julieta says the team will continue to provide top-notch bilingual services, advocacy and support with a “whole family, two generation” focus. She is interested in bringing her expertise in mental health to our participants, too: “I want to strengthen the delivery of trauma-informed care so families who have faced tough challenges can find healing and connection.”
Julieta adds that she is: “excited about the opportunity to collaborate with thoughtful and driven colleagues who are passionate about supporting the growth and resilience of the immigrant community.”
We think she will fit right in at Good Samaritan. Our Family Services team has a long history of making sure each family feels genuinely respected and valued for their culture, language, past experiences and future goals.
Thanks to Trips for Kids Marin for providing bikes to Everett Middle School students enrolled in our after-school, outdoor exploration program! Our students rode to Ocean Beach from the Mission District!
The high tides and wind created sea foam that made them feel like they were on top of the clouds!
