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 youth 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 can participate in the BUZZ BOXX MOBILE Route program where we visit their location periodically to mentor and service their youth. * The youth's progress (and our success) is monitored through surveys and reports from the youth, their parents and the participating youth organizations and schools. In an effort to empower our communities we aim to hire local barbers from within the communities we serve.
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.
