Sister 2 Sister Mentoring

In 2014, Near West Side CDC provided youth with a mentoring program with cosmetology as the base. While the young ladies learned about and discussed issues such as bullying, hygiene, self-awareness, goal planning, and what it means to be a woman. They were also tutored in apprenticeship fashion on the areas of cosmetology such as aesthetics, hair design, and skin care. For those who envision a career in cosmetology, tours and information was provided for their post-secondary educational advantage.
