It has been an exciting new year for our cosmetology course. First, Roseline Sonday, Student Coordinator & Cosmetology Teacher’s Assistant, recruited a new instructor, Felton Waydiyee Fouah, because he has a broader set of skills that will benefit our 11 students.

Secondly, our team has been working on building a cosmetology learning lab for the students to have their own space. The students have moved in even though the lab is not yet complete. The ultimate goal is to make this look like a salon. Roseline expressed her excitement for this new space: “I am so excited for our new classroom. Felton and I are doing very well with the teaching. The students are so happy with their new classroom, and also they thank us for our hard work.”

Finally, our new instructor created an opportunity for our students to earn money as they apply their skills to clients that he invited to our center.

You helped this student realize her dream!

Your investment with our cosmetology students is preparing them to provide high-quality service in hair care, facials, and manicures/pedicures. This is a helpful service for both men and women.
