Who – Conscious Heads Barbering Bootcamp

What – Conscious Heads Barbering Bootcamp provides pre-apprenticeship training and matching services to graduating seniors ages 16-24 who did not have a post-secondary plan for their education.

When – Classes begin every five weeks though out the year with space for twenty individuals. Class attendance is one day per week. Class selection days are:

Sunday – 10am to 12pm & 1pm to 3pm

Monday through Wednesday 6pm to 8pm

Where – 219 E 25th St, Baltimore, MD 21218

Why – Every June graduating seniors from Baltimore City Public School filter into two and four year colleges/universities, military service, vocational school, full-time work or self-employment. However, there are always a certain percentage of graduates who HAVE NO PLANS AT ALL. RBCF & Conscious Heads Barbering Boot, manager Jabari Natur has been assessing these percentages at local area high schools in efforts to reduce the numbers at establishments with above average rates.

How – By offering pre-apprenticeship training and matching services for graduating or post graduate seniors we can dramatically increase their chances of obtaining an apprenticeship opportunity with a local Master Barber. Based on our survey of one-hundred local Master Barbers, we discovered that they are “highly likely” to accept an individual as an apprentice if they already have “some basic knowledge and skill” of the barbering profession.

You can sponsor a student who is unable to afford his or her pre-training by donating amount of any size. The cost of a student to complete the five week course is $500. When you make a donation you will receive a picture of your pre-apprentice student along with regular updates of his or her progress.
