Farewell and Best Wishes
from Seena Clark, President, Board of
Trustees & Acting Executive Director

To all our students, alumni, clients, partners, teachers, staff, volunteers, board members, funders, supporters and friends, we wish you a wonderful holiday season. We have fulfilled our mission of serving thousands of students, both international and in the East Bay community, with excellent teaching, coaching, job placement and additional support, and we are proud to have known and worked with each of you. We will miss our daily work and the excitement of witnessing the transformation of people as they learn to express themselves more fully and in complete freedom. We will think of you often and wish you well in all your future endeavors. Thank you for your wonderful support over the years.

We are very proud of our former student, Dariush Nehdaran, who has a photography exhibition opening this Saturday.

"Shadows of the Tenderloin," an exhibition opening Saturday at Smash Gallery, will feature Dariush Nehdaran's photographs of life on the Tenderloin streets. From a picnic on a blanket on the City Hall lawn to reading before zipping up the sleeping bag for the night, the photos capture intimate moments in San Francisco's homeless community. The opening reception is from 7-11 p.m. The show runs through Aug. 31, and the gallery will donate a portion of proceeds to Tenderloin service organizations. For more, visit Smash Gallery or smashgallery.com.
