Hey Sweet Dreamers!Last Sunday June 9th Karen Murray Kennedy, one of Turning Heads volunteers, hosted a chocolate tasting and factory tour in order to raise awareness for Turning Heads. The event was at Charles Chocolates from 2:00pm-4:00pm. Charles Chocolates is located in the Mission District, is a widely recognized producer of fine chocolates. Also some of the mentors joined us.

First we meet there and did a little bit of delicious chocolate tasting followed by a tour of the factory. To finish off the afternoon we headed to the Turning Heads studio for brief tour. Around 10 people came to the studio and were showed the products we have. Hopefully we gain some new customers from this event.

End of Year Mentoring Celebration

Posted by: Melissa  :  Category: Uncategorized

On Saturday, June 1st, we had our end of the year mentoring celebration with our mentors from Rising Leaders Mentorship Program. Through these past three months they have helped us accomplish our individual goals. One of the things that they helped all of us out with was building our resumes and our LinkedIn profiles.

In my case, my mentor and I discussed my application for the Culinary program at City College and the pros and cons of that field. She encouraged me to pursue whatever I felt comfortable with but was also neutral in her opinions. With her help I feel more motivated, organized, and focused.

In case any of you mentors are reading this, we would like to thank you for all the hard work and time you put in for us. We gained a lot from this experience and we are looking forward to whatever comes next.
