More than 30 employers with job openings have already signed up to participate and the list is growing every day. The six workshops will include topics such as perfecting your interviewing skills, getting unstuck in your job search, challenges faced by mature workers, new college graduates, and veterans, networking, and best practices on LinkedIn. Sign up here!
From Dr. Cheryl Joseph: Some of you have already inquired about the Thanksgiving Picnic in Golden Gate Park this year. I am pleased to say that we are celebrating this event wherein we gather together as the NDNU community with the 200+ homeless individuals who reside in the Park for the 24th year in succession. Very soon, you will see donation boxes available throughout campus with a list of items we will need to make the picnic a success again this year. Monetary donations are always appreciated and can be dropped off either at my office (SJ110) or at the Sr. Dorothy Stang Center. Checks should be made out to “Sr. Dorothy Stang Center” with a notation on the memo line that reads “Thanksgiving Picnic.”
More important than your donations, however, is your participation in this community-wide event. We hope to see you at the Picnic itself on Thanksgiving Day anytime from 11AM-2PM off Stanyan Street between Haight and Oaks Streets. Alternately, we’d like to have your involvement in the food preparation which will take place in our cafeteria kitchen on Tues., Nov. 25 and Wed., Nov. 26 from 5:30-8PM each night.
Though Gabby Reyes and the Sr. Dorothy Stang Center are responsible for organizing the Thanksgiving Picnic in Golden Gate Park this year, I am happy to answer any questions you might have. Sincerely and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, Cheryl Joseph
