I go to Sault college in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Every 3 months a group of highs hook students from the disabilities class comes in for services. This includes waxing, cutting, styling, shampooing, conditioning treatments, and head massages. We also once a year join with our local habitat for humanity, and give services to those clients who need financial assistance at a discounted price (with our prices already being so low due to us being students). We are also assisting our schools fundraising project to bring a person from a third world country to become a student enrolled at the college, completely free for them. For this, any service we provide that day, all proceeds will go towards the WUSC organization at our school. Our school is also a location for any cancer patient undergoing chemo to receive a free wig from us. Because we are limited we ask the public for any wigs they may have, and we get a lot of support from the city. The client wishing to obtain a wig just has to agree to bring it back once a month for it to be cleaned and styled at no cost. Relay for life was just one week ago, our class participated and we did our best (despite the rainstorm we had) to spread the word about our wig program. I just wanted to share with you my schools participation in community, and I'm sure you can understand that there are many more examples of non-profit assistance we give to our community, but these, I thought would be the best to share. Good luck in your search, and I hope I helped :)

I think it is a great idea. Non profits can be tricky. I do not know of any thing like what you are looking in to.

I would look to the product lines you currently use for funding. One of them might foot majority if the start up to be a concept secondary school. You can try to make it a community organization as well. Get local businesses to help as well. Like builders, plumbers, electricians and put up a huge thank you plaque to say thank you. In Traverse City we have the Global hair and fashion network. It is a group of salons who join forces to help non profit community organizations. Like we just last night helped a local high school with a fashion show. It is cloths made from recycled materials. We offered hair and makeup. We do a cut a thon in the spring to help fund a local non profit that helps young ladies who are homeless or high risk for becoming homeless learn how to take care of them selves, and in the fall we our selves put on a huge fashion show and the profits go to the local women's resource center which helps abused women. These are all ideas you can use to help raise money or raise awareness to your nonprofit. I wish you a lot of luck.

Ok I have a big question to ask and I really need to get some feed back. I will give a little history of me because it think it will help you understand why I want to do what I feel led to do.

I am and aesthetician, make-up artist, nail tech and massage therapist. I have been in the business of beauty for over twenty three years and last year I went back to get my instructors license. I know enough about hair to be dangerous. I did go to beauty school in the 80’ but hated the perming so I got my manicure/shampoo lic.

I work in a five star resort and am the education director for the spa. I feel like I know want to give back more to my field. I love the spa, beauty business and live and breath it. I also see such a need to improve our beauty schools, not just what they need to learn to pass the test but more like enrichment programs and daycare for the young kids who need extra support. I also see how this could benefit the community that it servers by bringing in homeless, homebound, physical handicapped and medically challenged quest to the school. I believe we all should be touched by the gifted hands of the people who choose this as a careere and it could be a win, win for all involved.

I want it to be a Not for Proffit school and have been having a hard time finding one that exist. I really don’t need one to exist to start working on mine but it would be nice to talk to someone who has the heart and desire to do the same. 

I would like to have the input of anyone on this web site to chime in and tell me what you think. Thank you Jennifer Gibson
