Stylebrity Beauty & Beyond
Stylebrity Beauty & Beyond is a youth program developed to inspire the creativity and talent of young people who are interested in the beauty and fashion industries, as well as teach career building skills.
SBBSYC's primary focus is life skill training and career development in the beauty and fashion industries. Our goal is to develop young professionals by way of professionlism training, on-the-job training and technical training. Youth will develop basic skill knowledge in five areas and have the choice to specialize in one or explore all areas of training.
Technical training is as follows:
~ Hair Techniques
~ Makeup Techniques
~ Barbering Techniques
~ Fashion Techniques
~ Design Techniques
To empower youth with the skills and knowlegde to pursue a career in the beauty and fashion industries. Through hands-on skill training, motivational workshops and life skills coaching, youth will gain insite and skill to excel in their industry of choice. Through lectures and role play youth are trained to make smart decisions, choose life and the importance of having a dream and pursuing it. We demonstrate respect to all, faith in GOD and belief in self. We not only supply the map and compass, we train our youth how to properly use them. Ultimately, we are preparing youth to become successful, contribting adults.
How can I support SBBSYC's Efforts?
We at SBBSYC think its important for every youth to have an enriching experience. Unfortuantely, the kids that need it the most are underpriveledged and have very limited resources. Let's face it, most inner city youth are impoverished or living just above the poverty line here in New Orleans. Those are the kids least likely to attend college or graduate high school. Giving these youth the opportunity to explore a trade can be a life changing experience. SBBSYC promotes the importance of a college education with the full understanding that it may not be attainable or an option for all youth. Providing career opportunities for all youth is a great deterant to crime.
