Back To School BootCamp!
A.S.P.I.R.E (Awarding Students and Promoting Increased Rigor in Education) hosted its ever-popular Back To School BootCamp during NC-WBBBE (National & City-Wide Beauty, Barber, & Braider Entrepreneurs) 7th Annual Cuttin’ Up 4 Education Back To School event.
Volunteers from surrounding Central Texas Beauty and Barber Salons provided FREE salon services to school-age children from low socio-economic families throughout the metro Austin area; and A.S.P.I.R.E. facilitated its Back To School BootCamp!
School-age youth engaged in hands-on, rigorous, & enriching academic activities to review their skills, assess their mastery of content-related skills, enhance their knowledge, and learn something new!
Volunteers from other community outreach organizations also provided services and information to youth and parents to help them jump start a successful return Back To School; making the overall event a success.
