Braidz N' Thangz & Beauty of Character Fundraiser: Promoting Power, Purpose, and Poise!
Salon Know-How Educational & Training Institute’s Braidz N’ Thangz Internship Program (http://braidznthangz.org/) provides at-risk young females ages 18-24 with hands-on training and experience in braiding, natural and textured (Black) hair care, and cosmetology; with a focus to reach those from the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) diaspora.
The Braidz N’ Thangz Internship Program addresses the following areas:
*Provides an alternative pathway for those who may have considered turning to the sex trade for work, leading to sex trafficking and exploitation.
*A solution for families and young adults who would like to pursue vocational training by creating paid opportunities to learn while overcoming financial hardships.
*A resource for those who want to learn about natural and textured (Black) hair care, which isn’t taught in traditional cosmetology programs.
*We understand the importance of good mental health and self-esteem and provide counseling and education to participants to develop their interpersonal and intrapersonal skills through “The Beauty of Character” curricula.
*The Braidz N’ Thangz Internship Program is entirely free of charge for participants.
