The state mandates for Quarantine, curfews, and riots have lost us over 10 weeks of business. Not only do we offer personal barbering services, but our education has been halted as well.
Many of our students are unemployed, and are unable to make tuition. Rent as well as bills are all still due, and we have no respite in sight.
The grant would assist in covering rent allowing us to make concessions for our future graduates.
A grant would offer hope in that we could afford marketing to ensure that we have continued interest in our programs from those seeking careers of connection.
Funds would assist in covering insurance expenses to cover the legalities of business.
It would ensure not only the jobs of our team, but the future involvement of intentional barbers making a positive impact in their respective communities.
Blade Craft Barber Academy makes a positive impact in our community with the ability to open. Our facility currently hosts 49 students of which over 50% are Veterans. 19 more students were expecting to start in April.
The barbering services the students execute influence the individual receiving it in many healthy ways. Each service is curated with the Triad of emotion to ensure a positive result. The client looks good, but feels better.
They in turn influence their homes, and their job in an empowered state.
The businesses surrounding the Academy benefit from our students/guests purchasing goods, and services. Students are a captive audience in that their days being over 8 hours mean that they visit an array of businesses a week.
We want to ensure that the safe haven of acceptance and development is still available once the pandemic is over.
“Our mission is to refine the modern person through honing the craft of barbering one service at a time while becoming a positive impact in our world.” Blade Craft Barber Academy
On our team we have Blade Craft Graduates that are now Instructors to the future barbers. We have women, minorities as well as a Veteran.
No help is too small, and we thank you for your contributions to not only keep an existing business ongoing, but your help ensures that students can achieve their dreams of becoming barbers!
