Thank you for your interest in becoming a mentor!
We are looking for dynamic speakers, educators and mentors who are passionate about their crafts and enjoy helping others succeed to teach our high schoolers look and learn classes, hands on sessions, business workshops, leadership and team building skills.
The look & learn and hands on classes consist of a 2-4 hour experience, while business workshops are 1 hour each.
Look and learn sessions are taught on Saturdays throughout the year, while the hands on classes and business workshops are taught during our Girlpreneur Beauty Camp in July.
We normally cap at 50 teens for our summer session, but in 2024, we are looking to enroll 75-100 teens who may or may not be currently enrolled in a cosmetology, nail, or aesthetic program.
We need experts willing to share their gifts (virtually for Saturday sessions or in person for camp) in the following areas:
Volunteer (All 5 days) *not valid for virtual sessions
- Social Media

- Set up (to be done the day before Day 1) / Break Down (end of day 4)
Hands On Sessions:
- Intro to Hair Color
- Natural Hair Blow Outs (Silk Press)

- Team Building Exercises
- Leadership Skills
- Product Development (The steps to creating your first product.)
The summer camp is a 5 day event with hands on being days 1 -3 & day 4 will be the day for business workshops, and day 5 is dedicated to our 16+ teens wanting to compete for beauty school scholarships.
Camp Hours: All 5 days are 8am - 4pm with check in being at 7:30am and a 45 minute lunch break from 11:30- 12:15 every day.
Saturday Session Hours: 10am - 12pm
