Connecting Low Income San Francisco High School Students With Medical Careers

Thanks to funding from Kaiser Permanente, in 2015 FACES for the Future launched a program for juniors and seniors at John O’Connell High School in the Mission District of San Francisco, CA. The program supports entry into healthcare professions through internships, workshops, academic support, college preparation, and wellness support.

In its first year, the pilot program reached over 50 students who attended weekly trainings and workshop on clinical skills, career exposure, and professional development. In addition, 200 students received exposure to workshops focused on health career, during school wide events and health fairs. The program was staffed by a program coordinator through a first-of-its-kind contract between PHI and the San Francisco Department of Public Health, from the Mental Health Service Act workforce development fund overseen by San Francisco County.
