How to get involved with our mission as an employer or salon.
Being a young female in the world today is a challenge. With the current climate and covid pandemic, trying to forge a pathway to employment or further education whilst dealing with society pressures from social media, families, peer pressure and bullying, it is near impossible, and there is a real lack of positive, strong female role models today. To make matters worse young women can also be challenged by difficulties at home and are often caring for younger siblings, dealing with addiction issues or aggression at home.
This is leading to a generation of teenage girls low self esteem, confidence issues, eating disorders, promiscuity and teen pregnancies, self-harming, binge-drinking and substance abuse, panic attacks and anxiety, are just some of the symptoms apparent in their behaviour.
Not surprisingly we now have a confused generation, disengaging from education and the world around them which leads to low aspirations, poor body image, low self esteem and a confused identity and no idea how to create a future for themselves.
We are champions for young people and know our work makes a huge difference.
Young people are in the midst of a mental health crisis and they need us to show them a better way NOW!
WE are looking to find amazing salons to help us on our mission to support young people into employment we are looking for compassionate salons who could provide placements for our young people to compliment our training programmes.
We have developed a 12 week leadership and training programme combined with an insight into the hair and beauty industry to help young women develop confidence and self esteem whilst looking at positive pathways to employment.
Our 12 week program will run consecutively with 8 young people and deliver sessions on positive body image, confidence building, developing good mental health techniques, employability services, cvs, getting creative, hairdressing taster sessions, and insight into a career in hair and beauty.
The course will run weekly for 12 weeks and will be a certificated course hairdressing & leadership Certificate.
We then provide a strategic pipeline to placements, SVQ’s, apprenticeships and employment.
Would you like to join our movement and get involved as a placement provider, role model, mentor, coach, employer, fund raiser or ambassador.
