THE WOODLAND JOB CORPS GROOMING PROJECT

WoodlandFront
You can support the launch of our latest grooming project located at the WOODLAND JOB CORPS CENTER! The project was created when we discovered that one-third of its student-residents (approximately 100) lacked access to regular grooming services. We also learned that the average grooming cost creates major constrains on their monthly financial stipends (45% males & 67% females). The full-service shop will be an area in which volunteer barbers and hairstylist can provide no-charge services necessary to prepare them for upcoming job interviews and [new] employment. The student-residents will also be able to utilize the area to groom themselves and one another for upcoming job interviews and [new] employment. The average 2016  cost per client is equal to $15 per month.

2016 Project goal – $17,454
