BEETS Host Jobs Panel

11.5.13-BEETS-Panel_IMG_3289On Tuesday November 5, 2013 the CommunityGrows BEETS (Band of Environmentally Educated and Employable Teens) hosted a panel of workers from the community. On the panel were Francee Covington, a San Francisco Fire Commissioner, Carol Fields, a Rosa Parks Elementary School teacher, Genevieve Cyrs, an Occupational Therapist from the OTTP Training Program, Tyrone Mullins with (team members Marcus and James), from Green Streets, and Jeremy Siemers, Starbucks Store Manager.

A lively discussion ensued with panel participants talking about their jobs: how they got them, what they entailed, and what lessons and suggestions they could pass on about employment. Then there was time for the teens to ask everyone questions. It was a great sharing of ideas and inspiration. Thank you everyone for participating and sharing you lives with the BEETS.
