BEAUTY BOOT CAMP

 

Beauty Boot Camp (BBC) serves as a mentoring and support program that provides Social and Emotional learning for young ladies between 11 years old and 18 years old.  BBC offers confidential, compassionate, and educational group support. Our service is dedicated to developing the minds and bodies of young women found in diverse situations by helping them transform their way of thinking and perception during the developmental stages in their life. The ultimate vision for BBC is to create a growth mindset in each young lady. The experiences and inward change will carry on what she’s learned to the next young woman and so on. 

Our goal is to change and support the mindset of one young lady at a time. This program will give each young woman the opportunity to gain experience that will produce a growth mindset and lifestyle that can be carried throughout generations. We plan to serve the inner city and surrounding areas of Chicago and New York’s Charter and Public school systems as an after school program. In addition, we aim to raise funding to implement weekend and summer programming initially in the inner city of Chicago and later on creating programs throughout inner cities of various parts of the world. Beauty Boot Camp (BBC) serves as a mentoring and support program that provides Social and Emotional learning for young ladies between 11 years old and 18 years old.  BBC offers confidential, compassionate, and educational group support.

The Need

Our girls need us more than ever. Living in the age of technology they are experiencing social and emotional challenges like never before. Teaching a young girl the sound principles of positivity, forgiveness, discernment, how to deal with and gain control over their emotions, how to deal with their differences socially,  and to be goal driven in a world full of distractions helps to keep their minds on more productive things thus becoming more productive citizens.  The challenges of social media can add fuel to any adverse behavior from cyber bullying, suicide groups, and premature sexual relationships for example that can lead to a decline in grades at school, lack of focus, premature pregnancies, single parent homes, std’s, an increase in drop out rates etc.

The Solution

Our teaching at Beauty Boot Camp will take our members through a rigorous and freeing 10-12 week course. The courses are broken up into one/two 5-6 week sessions. Our program process is made up of three main components: a Social and Emotional skill set, a MHA Building Block, and a stimulating activity. Our team is sure to keep the course entertaining and creative while reinforcing each life and career building skill. At Beauty Boot Camp we believe that true beauty starts on the inside first.  We treat the underlying problems first. We don’t believe in just dressing the ladies up and doing their makeup without addressing key internal issues first. The first five/six weeks are instrumental in their growth and will set the pace for the latter five/six weeks to come. The end result is a total makeover for each young lady as they present their growth and improvement at our Makeover ceremony for their families, peers, and supporters.
