BUZZitFORWARD - DO BETTER PROJECT Philanthropy Miami 2017 Shark Tank Winner
With help from many partners and volunteers we have created and jump-started our BUZZitFORWARD - DO BETTER PROJECT, designed to help our youth LOOK BETTER, FEEL BETTER, and in-turn, DO BETTER.
The purpose is to encourage kids in our communities to do better or continue doing better by rewarding them with earned grooming services (any haircut or hairstyle of their choosing) as often as once a month or even every two weeks throughout their school year.
The service of the haircut helps our youth Look Better and Feel Better. While local community barbers provide one-on-one bonding with a person our youth trust, words of encouragement, and the follow-up needed to help them continue to Do Better.
Local schools, group homes and other youth organizations in our communities can sign up to participate in the BUZZitFORWARD program where we visit their location periodically to mentor and service their youth.
In an effort to empower our communities we aim to partner with local barbers from within the communities we serve.
Youth's progress (and our success) is monitored through surveys and reports from the kids, parents and the participating youth organizations and schools.
Teaming up with local barbers through our Barber Mentor Affiliate Program, together with the support of local sponsors and donors, gives us the potential to service over 600 youth per month and over 7,200 youth of multiple communities per year.
