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 throughout 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 from 6 pm to 8 pm
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 is 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 postgraduate 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 an 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.
