PROHAIRKIT.com donates tools to TRADE UP! NYC.
Trade Up! NYC is a not for profit after school Cosmetology program serving low income junior and senior high school students in Brooklyn, New York. Their two year program will provide students the necessary technical skills in Cosmetology, as well as life and professional adeptness, to succeed in the beauty industry.
Trade Up! NYC is an after-school vocational program, focusing on the arts and sciences of Cosmetology. The program will run from 4-7pm, after school for the last two years of high school, as well as a three week intensives course over the summers. For those who are accepted into the program, by the end of their senior year, they will have received extensive professional and life skills training and have completed their 1000 hour requirement to take the state board Cosmetology licensing test.
In addition to learning a trade, participants will receive enrichment classes as well as training in life and personal skill sets. Guest speakers and workshops will be delivered on a variety of topics such as public speaking, money management, etiquette, how to dress for success, conflict management, nutrition, handling stress, confidence building, mock interviews, and learning how to stay current in an ever changing industry.
