TI_sgasfpdCaptain Fong from San Francisco Police Department Southern Station invited a Treasure Island Job Corps Center Student Government Association student to attend a community meeting for the island at historic Building 1.

Captain Fong gave Student Government Association (SGA) President, Matthew Cawley time to speak to the island residents about our program and their concerns about unprofessional behavior. Matthew spoke eloquently about his reason for enrolling in the program, the platform and experience the SGA post has given him and what he plans to do after this training.

While the meeting was small, Matthew’s impact on the assembled group was huge. The island officers left with a better understanding of our students and what/how they can better connect. The Officers gave Matthew their cards and asked him to contact them for outreach. The officers said they would like to come to Center and host “Coffee with a Cop, a Q&A session and other activities to build rapport.

The Center congratulates Matthew on his successful leadership!
